Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: My son is legally blind but doesn’t qualify for SSI. I am out a great amount of money on medication and glasses for him. For a brief period of time, he qualified for expanded Medicaid and it was a huge help for me to be able to give him his inhalers and for help with glasses that he needed.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Dental health affects your over health. It’s extremely important to maintain proper dental care. For those with vision problems – glasses are too expensive!
