Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: I couldnÍt afford these services for years. After receiving these benefits, I was able to get glasses and have dental work completed. I was told by my optician that it was not legal for me to drive without glasses. I also had several bad teeth removed. These services allowed me to work and stop calling in sick

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: The day Matt Bevin took away these benefits, my front tooth fell out and I had to skip buying groceries in order to pay for my eye exam. I am not opposed to paying for my healthcare, but IÍd like to be able to pay my other bills as well. IÍve been very frugal about using the insurance…using it only when needed.
