The Tennessee General Assembly tackled several healthcare issues this year many of which were supported by DeKalb County ‘s state lawmakers.

During a recent video interview on WJLE, State Senator Mark Pody and State Representatives Clark Boyd and Terri Lynn Weaver discussed their views on healthcare issues including the Katie Beckett waiver — to assist families of children with medically complex needs regardless of their income; legislation making Tennessee the first state in the nation to ask the Trump administration for Medicaid funding in a block grant lump sum; and action designed to support struggling rural hospitals, among others.
