Special Health Needs

A child with special health needs may see many doctors who are specialists. These doctors are very important as they provide many types of services.

In addition to specialists, a child with special needs should also see his/her Primary Care Provider (PCP) for a yearly checkup.

If your child is under 21 and has TennCare, he/she should have a free, yearly health checkup. Your child can also get other health care services through the TennCare Kids program. Together, the specialists and the PCP can treat all of your child’s health care needs.
