Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Many children were able to receive hospital care where I worked because of Medicaid. Also many vulnerable adults were able to access treatment with KCHIP. Now that benefits are being taken away I fear more mental health issues that will directly effect our community which is already in a substance abuse crisis.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: We as a community need substance abuse treatment, dental and vision as well as regular medical care for our most vulnerable adults and children. The KY HEALTH plan is too confusing for those of us in the medical field and apparently those in government, so it’s impossible to think those who can’t read or have other disabilities can understand this new alternative plan or KY HEALTH.
