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 rely on it for my care as a recent college graduate with much debt looking for better opportunities, having this coverage allows me to stay healthy during my search and allows me to focus on my search rather than how to afford my healthcare. I have glasses and need them to see.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: I would no longer be able to afford my medical care and neither will my family members who are also on Medicaid. It will only give poor people more money issues and more things to worry about rather than working to improve their situations and becoming more productive members of society.
