Pro Bono Team Challenges TennCare Benefits Denial

We served as co-counsel alongside the Tennessee Justice Center and the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee representing an intellectually and developmentally disabled young man whose TennCare benefits were being cut. Despite receiving in-home 24/7 skilled nursing care for his entire life, the client stood to lose that level of benefits upon turning 21. The legal team filed a federal lawsuit claiming that TennCare’s policies as applied to their client violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. After a two-day preliminary injunction hearing, the team was successful in securing a stay of the lawsuit to permit their client to undergo a trial period in a group home setting, where he can get the round-the-clock care he needs.
