Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Oral care is paramount for overall good health. An abscessed tooth can turn septic. Vision care can lead to stroke prevention, along with other eye care issues, such as cataracts. If you don’t drive, you cannot get to appointments. It gives especially one pause, if our governor is trying to “thin the herd” by eliminating necessary services.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: My grandchildren will no longer have access to dental and optical care. Neighbors who are visually impaired will have no way to make their appointments without transportation.
