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 have two friends covered under the expansion. They are both college educated and work full-time. The jobs they have are low-income jobs that do not offer health insurance. i.e. cleaning houses.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: If low-income workers loose Medicaid benefits, then they will have to go to the ER for care, which is more costly. They will also loose preventative services that will help keep them well and able to work the low income jobs.
