Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: My daughter is under 18 and has benefited greatly for the extra care. She will still need care once she’s legally independent.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Dental and vision are part of overall health. They are essential parts of the body so getting care is essential. Preventive care is cheaper in the long run for everyone and leads to longer, more productive lives. Being sick and not being able to get to your doctor through no choice or fault of your own doesn’t mean you don’t deserve care either.
