Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: I am a nurse for White House Clinics in McKee. My patients live in a very rural area and have benefited greatly by having Medicaid coverage that allowed them to go to dental and vision exams and had it not been for transportation to get them their health would be jeopardized greatly. Transportation to and from these visits allowed for safe travel for patients and our communities. These benefits being taken away will have a huge impact on patients health.
