A.M.C. v. Smith, Middle District of Tennessee

Executive Summary

Thirty-five children and adults from across Tennessee brought a class action challenging the State for wrongfully terminating people’s health insurance under Tennessee’s Medicaid program, known as TennCare. The Plaintiffs allege that TennCare’s system for reevaluating eligibility is defective and fails to provide the notice and opportunity for hearing required by the Medicaid Act and the Constitution. They also claim that TennCare’s eligibility redetermination process discriminates against people with disabilities.
