Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance:

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: My partner works 40 hours a week as a temp tech at UK, and therefore does not qualify for employer sponsored insurance.

Without it, he will have to pay out of pocket for every trip to the doctor, and therefore will likely not seek medical care unless there is an emergency.
