Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: I know of community members who were able to get to their medical appointments because of the Medicaid Transportation system. With out the transportation so many people would not have the means to get to their much needed medical appointments. Dental and Vision benefits are very critical to so many Medicaid recipients. So many Kentuckians utilize these benefits to remain healthy.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: Eliminating these benefits would be very hard on people I know in the community. Dental benefits have helped so many people start dental treatment plans for the first time in their lives! If these dental benefits were eliminated, many people would not get the preventive treatment they need or take care of dental issues when they first arise, leading to more complicated procedures down the road.
