(TAYLOR):
"
'A-A-R-P MISSISSIPPI' THANKS THE 'HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES' FOR APPROVING 'HOUSE-BILL 11-SEVEN-EIGHT'.  AND, WE URGE THE SENATE'S 'PUBLIC-HEALTH AND WELFARE COMMITTEE' TO ALSO PASS THE BILL--BECAUSE IT COULD HELP THOUSANDS OF MISSISSIPPIANS, AND THEIR CAREGIVERS.  EXPANDING TELEMEDICINE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF BOTH PATIENTS AND CAREGIVERS--BY HELPING ELIMINATE BARRIERS THAT HINDER CARE AND TREATMENT.  THIS IS TRUE NOT ONLY FOR THOSE IN RURAL, MEDICALLY UNDERSERVED AREAS--BUT ALSO FOR THOSE, THROUGHOUT THE STATE, WHO HAVE ISSUES WITH MOBILITY AND TRAVEL.  THERE ARE MORE THAN HALF-A-MILLION FAMILY-CAREGIVERS, THROUGHOUT MISSISSIPPI, WHO PROVIDE FIVE-POINT-THREE-BILLION DOLLARS, IN UNPAID CARE, EACH YEAR.  AND, WE BELIEVE THAT TELEMEDICINE CAN HELP PROMOTE HIGH-QUALITY CARE THAT'S PRACTICAL, AFFORDABLE, AND EFFECTIVE--BECAUSE NOT EVERY MEDICAL-CONDITION WARRANTS A TRIP TO AN OFFICE, URGENT-CARE CLINIC, OR HOSPITAL EMERGENCY-ROOM.  THIS CAN MAKE IT EASIER FOR INDIVIDUALS TO LIVE INDEPENDENTLY, IN THEIR HOMES AND COMMUNITIES--WHICH, IN TURN, CAN HELP THEIR CAREGIVERS, MANY OF WHOM WORK FULL-TIME."
