Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: I am a pediatrician in Morehead. A high percentage of my patients have Medicaid and rely on transportation assistance to get to local appts. and to see specialists in Lexington, Ashland, Louisville and other cities.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Vision and dental care are not luxuries. They both affect overall health, and often are necessary to being a viable candidate in the job market. My patients and there parents need these services as much as private insurance patients do, to be healthy and pursue their educations and careers.
