Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: My grandchildren and daughter in law have been able to get glasses, fillings, extractions and transportation to UK when my grandson had to be life flighted to the NICU.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Children will no longer get the required vision and dental screenings for school because they will not be able to afford them. People will lose teeth, have infections go untreated and will ultimately have their overall health affected by these cuts. ItÍs wrong, and not good for the poorest Kentuckians. Those who work in the fields, factories and coal mines and are the very backbone of our state economy will be impacted the most severely. Do not take these vital coverages away from people who already have so little.
