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 the retired CEO of a clinic in Eastern KY where dental care was provided. Dental care had a major impact on the health of Medicaid beneficiaries. I believe it improved children’s school performance.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Adequate dental care directly impacts health including cardiovascular disease.
