Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Dental and vision care ARE healthcare. Dental health in particular can have a detrimental impact on health which can increase costs for medical services if not treated. Transportation is crucial to help families reach medical services at a distance from their home particularly in rural counties.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Kentuckians have a really low life expectancy compared to the rest of the nation. I am concerned that a move like this will cause this to worsen.
