Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Vision and dental care are essential to wellness AND employability. Cheaper to supply basic services than correct catastrophic illness.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: When I worked in Frankfort, I interviewed a woman who had pulled her own tooth. No dentist would treat her without prepayment. In this day and age, pulling your tooth worth pliers. I never forgot her face.
