Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: I work with those who are living with HIV/AIDS and their dental needs are very crucial to their overall well-being. People living with HIV/AIDS already have a daily battle of fighting off other virus and an infected tooth or gums could end up being a life or death situation for them especially if they develop an opportunistic infection. Ending benefits for those who so need it is almost cruel. In the end others could end up paying more for insurance and other things due to the inability of those who have been denied benefits cant afford to pay their bills. Please don’t harm those in need because that is exactly what will happen if you take away their benefits.
