Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Our income level makes eye-care and dental care very difficult to keep up. Thanks to Medicaid our four children were able to have their teeth cleaned regularly, learn about the importance of dental care, and have minor problems repaired. Medicaid also made it possible to have our children’s eyes examined. An eye doctor discovered our youngest has amblyopia and was able to correct his vision. Had we been without Medicaid our choices of insurance would have been very limited and it is doubtful we would have had vision coverage. Medicaid has also made it possible for my husband and I to have vision and dental check exams.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Eliminating these benefits completely would be very hard on our family.
