Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: There had been more preventive medicine which keeps people healthier and keeps the costs of medical services down in the long run.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Many in my community live on the margins. Without assistance, they and their children will be unable to afford reasonable dental and vision care. Nor will they even be able to seek needed health care because of lack of transportation. The result will
be more catastrophic and expensive health care interventions that we will all be paying for. A Stronger and healthier population does better at work and at school and our community benefits.
