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.
My nephews rely on services provided by Medicaid to succeed in school.
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.
