Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: Oral health is directly tied to overall health, specifically cardiac conditions. Eyesight is one of our 5 senses and many diseases and conditions manifest in both these areas. An integrative functional approach will lead to better outcomes.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: I was diagnosed with stage 4 thyroid cancer in late 2014. Eliminating these benefits directly impact my health and wellbeing and would contribute to my decline and inability to work at all.
