Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: My husband was able to have his teeth, which were in very bad shape, extracted. This put a stop to the excruciating pain he dealt with daily and gave him the means to be able to eat again normally.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Everyone receiving Medicaid is affected negatively, because without these benefits you must suffer with dental pain, and many without vision benefits struggle daily to see properly. We are an income group that CANNOT afford these benefits out of pocket, even though we work every day.
