Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: After years without dental coverage, I needed fillings on nearly every molar. My teeth were so painful, but KY dental coverage helped me fix everything. I am less angry and work better without constant mouth pain. I also found out I was nearsighted, which explained why driving was so confusing to me. With my new glasses, I’m finally learning to drive at age 30!

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: I am about to move from KY, but it will certainly hurt the state. There are many people like me who suffered in the past without glasses or necessary dental work. They’ve seen improvements in productivity and in their quality of the. I would hate for the state to lose this!
