Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Dental care is crucial for a person’s overall health and well being. I don’t really know why I have to sit here and tell the state why having dental care is important and necessary. It is common sense to cover dental care as many dental conditions, if left untreated, become medical issues. This is insane and Kentucky is so backwards!

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: My significant other receives Medicaid benefits and would lose access to dental care that is needed. IT seems to me that leaving dental care out for Medicaid users, a large part of Kentucky’s residents, would end up costing the state more due to untreated infections.
