Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Although I don’t have medicaid now I at one time had to rely on medicaid and had to use the transportation for minor surgery in Louisville since I had no one else able to do it and would not have been safe for me to drive myself. I was also able to see a dentist and get vision exam. All of these are essential health benefits.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: I’ve personally witnessed Kentuckians trying to make ends meet and suffering from lack of healthcare. It is cruel and unjust to take away these much needed benefits. All of them affect the overall health of individuals. This decision is cruel and unjust and does nothing to promote wellness.
