Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance:

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Elimination of these benefits is shortsighted and will result in greater Medicaid expenses later. Dental problems lead to all kinds of physical health problems. People need to be able to see in order to work. If you can only get to a medical service when it is an emergency, that will lead people to wait until things worsen and then need higher level (and more expensive) services. Not to mention that this was obvious retaliation for the court’s ruling!
