Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: As someone with very poor eyesight I understand that if a person canÍt see it can affect everything. Legally I cannot drive a car without my glasses. I couldnÍt work without them. BevinÍs mean spirited actions are not helpful. I have vision insurance. Last August my new eyeglasses prescription, WITH insurance, was over $400. I had to get a new prescription last week, again over $400. How is someone who is poor enough to be covered by Medicaid supposed to afford that?
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Ddntal health is directly linked to overall health. ItÍs important. BevinÍs telling these people thst they must work and then taking away the things that help them do so. Being poor is a struggle. HeÍs piling on these people for no other reason than to be cruel.
