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 have spent my entire life in and out of RAM clinics in order to get access to oral health services. Thanks to the ACA, I no longer have to do this…had to do this. Medicaid has allowed me to have much-needed oral surgery and preventative care, all of which has been taken away from me.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: I will have to go back to waiting in line until 4am to see a dental student at a RAM clinic somewhere in the state. My current needed dental work will have to be put off until I can find such a clinic.
