Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: I receive all of my health benefits through medicaid, including free birth control. I utilize my medicaid services for yearly papa smears and routine checkups. I am currently a student with little to no income, so medicaid provides me with the opportunity to be attentive to my health and overall well-being.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: This would prevent me from having access to affordable medical services that keep me healthy. It would make it more difficult for me to get routine eye exams and dental exams, which could be harmful to my health and well-being.
