Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: If people can’t see, they can’t take care of themselves and others. They can’t contribute to society. If people’s teeth are unhealthy, their whole body will be unhealthy. A dental abscess can kill. It is the least we can do to help people have a decent quality of life.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: It will lower people’s quality of life, take away their ability to care for themselves and others, and limit their ability to be part of society. It will further the gap between the have and have nots.
