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’ve had a lot more patients wanting to go to the dentist as well as the eye doctor. I’ve had a couple patients who’ve been a able to get teeth pulled and it filled. I’ve had a patient who found out he had an eye disease that was causing headaches. He was able to find this out because he used Federated transportation to get he him to his appointment.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Having these things taken away will and can cause additional problems with your eyes and teeth with what is already present. It may cause an increase in ER visits if a person feel they can’t go to the proper place to get care.
As far as transportation, it’s this is sometimes the only a person will get to their appointments when family is either not available or around.
