Faces of Medicaid

Millions of Americans rely on Medicaid to live with dignity. The vital services provided by Medicaid enable American’s with disabilities to live and participate in their communities. This isn’t about data and numbers, it’s about the lives of real people.

Medicaid is the best thing that ever happened to me. I don't know what I'd do without it.
People's lives matter. My life matters.

#SaveMedicaid 80% of Medicaid goes to cover children, the disabled, and the elderly. GROTESQUE personality wants to cut it 50%. #genocide

Medicaid provides our son with critical services that allow us to work and support our family, and helps him get specialized equipment that improves his quality of life and learning.

That's me on the left hugging my sister Becka. We both benefit from Medicaid. My sister has Down Syndrome and was born with a hole in her heart. Medicaid helps pay for her medical expenses, which might eventually include her getting surgery for a pacemaker. I am deaf. Medicaid helped pay for my cochlear implant in my right ear so I can "hear." Without my cochlear implant, I was forced to guess at conversations among hearing people or just be left out altogether. With Medicaid, my sister and I can afford medical surgeries that would be too expensive otherwise.
