Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: The data tells us that people wait until there is an emergency, which is far more expensive than preventive care.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: The obvious answer is that we will once again be approaching problems at the crisis level, instead of being proactive. For some reason, it is believed that this reaction is more cost-efficient; nothing could be further from the truth.
