TennCare implemented a Newborn PE program on August 18, 2014. In the interests of expediency, TennCare implemented the Newborn PE program without executing formal agreements with participating hospitals. In the coming months, TennCare will circulate a Newborn PE agreement, which hospitals must execute to continue to perform Newborn PE determinations. Additionally, these hospitals must begin using a new interface at TennCare Online Services later this year. However, hospitals that participate in the Hospital PE program and sign a Hospital PE agreement will not need to sign a second agreement for Newborn PE – and they can use the Hospital PE interface for all PE transactions (including those for newborns).
