Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: My husband works for a non profit organization so the salary is not high and doesnÍt offer health insurance. I am self employed babysitting in my home while I raise and homeschool our two young children. The expanded Medicaid has allowed us to continue working and serving in our community without having to stress about our familyÍs health needs.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: We have received great care and coverage, but if we lose dental and vision coverage our family may not always be able to access preventive care when itÍs needed and have to rely on savings for emergency health situations
