State Senator Paul Bailey of Sparta has filed legislation in the Tennessee General Assembly calling for insurance companies to pay for a heart rate monitor for a baby at risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) when it is prescribed by a licensed physician.
Bailey said the legislation would provide health insurance coverage for the monitor when a doctor prescribes it, which is a tremendous help to families with an infant who needs monitoring, but without insurance coverage cannot afford it. Tennessee has a high infant mortality rate. Bailey said he believes having this coverage will help save lives.
SIDS is a medical disorder that claims the lives of thousands of young children one week to one year of age. Over 1,000 infants have died from SIDS in the past ten years in Tennessee
The legislation comes after a constituent in Bailey’s senatorial district had an infant die of SIDS which raised awareness for the condition.
The Tennessee Department of Health is concerned about increases in mumps cases, including an ongoing outbreak in neighboring Arkansas which so far involves more than 2,400 suspected or confirmed cases of the illness.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all adults born in 1957 or more recently who have not had mumps receive at least one dose of the measles-mumps-rubella, or MMR vaccine in their lifetimes. Two doses are recommended for adults in high-risk settings: those attending college, working in a healthcare facility or traveling internationally.
Two doses of MMR vaccine are required for school and college students in Tennessee. MMR vaccine is available at all county health departments to any individual for whom protection from these diseases is desired.
