NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The TennCare Standard Spend Down program will accept enrollees Monday beginning at 7 p.m. EDT.

The program is available for a limited number of qualified low income individuals, or those with high, unpaid medical bills who are aged, blind, disabled or the caretaker relative of a Medicaid eligible child. Individuals must have enough unpaid medical bills to meet the "spend down" threshold to qualify.

The number to call is 1-866-358-3230.

The program is a waiver to Medicaid.
