Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Most of the community is not able to afford transportation to or from their medical appointment. The medical transportation take the burned off having to figure out if I have a way to my medical appointment I need to keep up with my health. Dental care is important just as medical appointment. Some dental issue can be trigger to other health issues. For an example heart issues, even to diabetes. Some people don’t take that into consideration. Dental hygiene is very important. Most older people that has glaucoma are not able to get their eyes check because of this benefit cut. Which is not ethical for our population.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: It has already affect everyone in which ways only a medical provider, family member or anyone who has any concerns regarding anyone’s health. More ways that can be mention. An seems as if the only route to take if its available is going to the emergency room. That’s the only alternative they have left us with.
