Doctors with different backgrounds are giving their opinions on how medicaid is working in the state before lawmakers get down to the details of how it will run for the next three years.

Courtney ann jackson was there for today's hearing and joins us with a recap.

Doctors aren't asking for a full overhaul of the medicaid system but do want some tweaks made.

One thing dr. dustin genry says should remain---no cap on how many times those on medicaid can go to the doctor.

That was removed in 2018.

"it's in your best interest to keep it that way because just as soon as you start capping, they're going to go into the emergency room and be put into the hospital on a more frequent basis."

Another takeaway---it's not just care for adults they're considering.

"pediatricians are your medicaid workforce.

2/3 of the children in mississippi are on medicaid."

Coverage for women who've just delivered a baby has been extended to a full year because of the pandemic.

Obgyns are asking the state to consider putting a similar extension in for the future.

"the health care challenges that women face don't end at the end of their pregnancy."

While medicaid expansion wasn't brought up by lawmakers---the president of the state medical association ended his remarks with this request.

"inexcusably, we have forgone billions in federal assistance that would've helped our most vulnerable citizens.

We ask the legislature to act on expanding coverage in the upcoming session."

The mississippi health advocacy program points to medicaid expansion gaining new ground in other states that previously rejected it.

"covid 19 has caused us to re- evaluate our helathcare policies and choices.

So, it's time we re- evaluate our position on medicaid expansion as well.medicaid expansion has proven to save lives.

We've got so far to go in correcting all the health inequities of this state.

Let's start with medicaid expansion."

Even this building they got to temporarily house their belongings was flipped over by delta.

Brailee says her family lost their homes to hurricanes when she was five and eight years old.

She's now 19.

This is the first time we've come back to something that we can actually fix.

Stinger it's the result of 3 million injuries every year... after the break, we discuss concussions.

Health talk with baptist is next.

Stay with us.

Cash 3 lottery gfx goes here intro almost 3 million sports-related concussions happen every year.

And 5 out of 10 of them go undetected.

Tonight we speak with dr. lee richardson in part 1 of our conversation on concussions.

Here's health talk with baptist.

Pkg no script billboard attached stinger two weeks ago it seemed the bulldogs were on top of the world after defeating the defending champion l-s-u tigers... the past two weeks... mississippi state's offense has averaged only eight points per contest coming off a night they'd like to forget in lexington... falling to the wildcats 24- 2... it's the first time ever a mike leach led team didn't score a touchdown in a game kind of hard to score a touchdown when you're picked off six times..

Leach says no job on offense is solidified "we're going to have competition at nearly every position out there because we need to get the most cohesive group.

Just as far as being competitive at every position, it's what we need to do.

I think we need to take care of the football better for sure.

As i said in the last press conference, i don't think we're protecting well.

I don't think we're seeing the field well.

I don't think we're catching well or running routes very well."

To call saturday's matchup in oxford between ole miss and alabama a shootout... would be an understatement... the rebels and crimson tide scored a combined 111 points... which made it the highest scoring non- overtime game in sec history... after the game albama head coach nick saban made a comment saying quote "it seemed like everything we did they had an answer for it, i don't know if they had our signals or what"... ole miss' 48 points was the most points number two alabama allowed to an unranked opponent in the ap era... and lane kiffin addressed saban's comments , .

First of all i never even paid attention to signals.

I didn't even know they were there.

This is also a new coordinator.

I love coach and have a ton of respect for him but if you understand tempo, a signal wouldn't help us.

We call the play basically before the last play is even over.

Before they even mark the ball, we call our play.

They're scrambling to get their guys lined up and it wouldn't do them any good.

But the time someone were to relay that to us we are already snapping the ball another week of endzone is in the books filled with big wins, upsets and highlight plays!

Lets take a look at our wcbi endzone top 5 plays of week 6!

#5 from our game #5 from our game of the week....itawamba versus shannon....indians tae chandler breaks off a 45 yard run down the sidelines...dives in for 6!!
