Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Luckily I donÍt need transportation assistance and I had just gotten my eyes examined the week before I lost my benefits. But not having dental is really awful. Dental health can affect a personÍs overall health. If neglected, it can become a much more expensive issue. This will only end up costing more money.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: I feel really badly for those who really need transportation assistance or healthcare that now will not have it. IÍm worried for the future of my dental health.
