MEMPHIS — Following the proposal of a similar bill in Kentucky, a Tennessee bill dubbed “The Viagra Bill” has made its way to the Tennessee State House, according to WMC Action News 5.

Tennessee House Bill 1927 would require spousal permission before a male could be deemed eligible to receive a Viagra prescription. The bill is designed to offer a direct contrast to recent legislation that requires that a women receives a doctors visit within 24 hours of having an abortion.

When asked about her own bill proposal in Kentucky, Representative Mary Lou Marzian offered the following, “We do not want government involved in personal, private medical matters.”

The bill that intends to give male representatives “a taste of their own medicine” would require the following:

  • Sexual partner confirmation that the male in question suffers from erectile dysfunction
  • Male must get a cardiac stress test to confirm they are healthy enough for sexual activity
  • Doctor must notify the potential user in writing of all health risks associated with Viagra use

In the event that a patient would seek to refill their prescription the bill would require additional doctor visits to acquire the desired refill.

However, by the far the most impactful point the bill seeks to accomplish is that Viagra and similar drugs would no longer be covered by any form of health insurance. This aspect of the bill comes as a direct response to female health drugs and practices being deemed ineligible for health care coverage in recent years.
