Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: People on Medicaid are there for a reason. Taking away vision, dental, and even transportation is taking away a key part of our health and a way to get to vital appointments.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: If my husband and I canÍt get vision or dental, it can leave me paying almost $1,000 a year just for an eye exam and glasses. Without those IÍm not even legally (or safely) able to drive my children to doctor appointments and we have 2 medically needy children. My husband is not able to have the dental work that he needs and heÍs struggling to even eat.
