Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: The community benefits when children have access to these services. Poor vision/poor dental health has a negative impact on a child’s ability to benefit from instruction. Adults have difficulty working if they are in pain due to poor dental health. DRIVING, and therefore public safety can be impacted by poor vision.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: P÷or vision can lead to accidents, poor dental health can lead to illness & missed work. It doesn’t make sense to not take care of BASIC health care needs.
