Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: My dad was on Medicaid before he died and relied heavily on the vision care and transportation services. He had weekly therapy to relearn how to walk and live on his own. Thanks to these services he was able to recover enough to live without assistance. I donÍt know what we would have done for him without these benefits.
Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: People with limited transportation will suffer the most. This can cause more frequent hospital visits and la larger burden of expense on the Medicaid system.
