Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: All communities benefit from the provision of basic care for citizens. Dental and vision health are essential for parenting, working and contributing to the community.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: It is immoral to not do so. Such policy reduces us as a civil society. Not to mention the impact it will have on the productivity of Medicaid recipients when they cannot adequately see to work or get to work. Also it is clear that poor dental health adversely impacts overall health thereby increasing overall cost of health care.
