Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: In one of my jobs I work with people going through cancer treatment and they are able to get to those treatments because of Medicaid transport.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: In one of my jobs I work with people going through cancer treatment. If it weren’t for Medicaid transport many of them would not be able to make it to life saving treatment and would very likely die much sooner. Additionally, I believe that everyone should have access to healthcare regardless of their background or ability to pay as I feel like it is a basic human right. When we are all better taken care of, we are all better off.
