Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: I’m covered by employer insurance, but I know firsthand how expensive dental procedures can be, and that’s IF you are getting regular check ups. Eyewear is also pricey but unless you have 20/20 vision, you need to be able to see clearly. These are important body parts and should be included in health care plans.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: It’s not hard to guess that people with limited resources will go without these basic needs and end up in poorer health with decreased chances to be full-time and productive workers.
