Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Diabetes complications worsen with lack of dental care. Checkups help make sure my mom is OK.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Kentucky was a leader in expanding Medicaid which was important because of the prevalence of poverty here. We were a role model for the nation. Governor Bevin and his supporters are willfully and viciously undermining that leadership. Their incompetence is embarrassing and staggering, and the recent reaction to the federal ruling on KY HEALTH shows that they have no idea to care for its citizens.
