Guidance for using service codes for reimbursement of patient services provided by health coaches in team-based care is now available on our Reimbursement page. You will find FAQs, a list of codes with descriptions, and common voluntary health-coach training and certification standards.

In 2021, Tennessee was chosen by the U.S. Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ) to create a statewide network of care that incorporates a patient-centered approach to improve the health of people with cardiovascular disease. Building on this work, we are now focusing intensely on the 40 Tennessee census tracts with the highest prevalence of hypertension with the support of the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC). The need in our state is great.

Tennessee ranks #3 in heart attacks.

We’re here to change that.

Hypertension control and smoking cessation, two of the most potent risk factors for heart disease, will be our targets as we engage practices and patients in our work to move the needle to improve Tennessee Heart Health.
