My name is Hannah M, I am from Zanesville Ohio. I am 21 years old.
Medicaid has helped me with my 2 pregnancies and having my kids. I would be in debt the rest of my life just for bringing two lives into this world if not for Medicaid.
Medicaid has also helped me with medications that I wouldn’t be able to afford myself. One of the medicines that is prescribed helped me get off street drugs. If I had to pay out of pocket, I would probably still be in active addiction with no other options.
I also have bad teeth and I would be in a lot of pain if my Medicaid didn’t cover the work I needed on my teeth. It costed $700 just to fix two cavities. I could not afford to pay this out of my pocket, but Medicaid saved me.
Medicaid has helped me in many other ways that relates to my health. I work part time, and I don’t have medical insurance at work. Medicaid has saved my life as well as my children’s.
