Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Two of my children received dental braces on Friday, June 29th. They were both having serious gingivitis, tooth decay, and mouth infections from severe overcrowding. It was essential that they have them put on to stop these issues from becoming worse, causing the possibility of decaying teeth and the permanent loss of adult teeth.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: I do not know what will happen with their braces now. I can not afford to pay for them on my own. I am saddened and discouraged. I also rely on the vision insurance because I have astigmatism. My eyesight is poor without corrective lenses. I am concerned I will no longer be able to drive or work if I have limited vision.
