Story

Please tell us how you, your family or your community has benefited from Medicaid coverage for dental care, vision care, and transportation assistance: My family has not benefited from these services, however the patient population that I work with uses these services frequently. Those who are medically compromised need access to all forms of care in order to keep their entire body healthy. Dental issues have been proven to be a cause for heart problems among other total body issues. All Americans should have access to dental care, not just the ones who are middle to upper class.

Please tell us how eliminating these benefits would affect you, your family, or your community: The elimination of these benefits means that those in need of dental care won’t get it, the effects of this should be pretty obvious, then again if the folks who have always had money and access to care are the ones making the decisions, then they won’t have a chance of understanding how this will affect our community!
