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 registered nurse and many of my patients depend on Medicaid for dental care, vision care, and transportation. Without it their lives will be negatively impacted to say the least. Recently one of my patients went to a dental appointment for an accessed tooth and was told that he no longer has coverage. He is now suffering with this condition until this Medicaid situation is resolved.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: I also have many patients who depend on Medicaid for transportation to be able to attend dialysis treatments which are a life saving treatment that they must attend 3 times per week. Without transportation their lives will be shortened of much less quality.
