Established in 2014, the mission of the Tennessee Charitable Care Network (TCCN) is to provide support, education, and representation for non-profit organizations that provide charitable health care services to low-income, uninsured, and underserved Tennesseans. TCCN has 51 members in 57 locations providing medical, dental, medication assistance, behavioral health and/or care coordination serves across Tennessee.  TCCN members are not federally funded and rely in part, or whole, on volunteers to operate.  Last year, community and faith based (CFB) programs served 70,415 patients with 292,650 encounters and all services were provided without cost to the patient or on a sliding scale/donation basis.  For more information, visit: www.tccnetwork.org.
