Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1200-11-03-.01 - STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
In an effort to provide comprehensive services and eliminate health barriers and disparities for children with special health care needs in Tennessee, the Tennessee Legislature created the Children's Special Services (CSS) Program. The program is intended to assure that children in this population are identified early and receive high quality coordinated care and that their families receive support. The program serves those children who meet the T.C.A. § 68-12-102 definition of "a child with a physical disability." To the extent that funding is available, program resources provide for diagnostically related services for enrolled children when other payors are unable to provide payment.
Authority: T.C.A. §§ 4-5-202, 68-1-103, 68-12-101 et seq., 68-12-104, and 42 U.S.C. § 701(a).
