“My name is LeeAnn. I live in Athens, Ohio.
I was enrolled in Medicaid for 3 years. My coverage ended in November of 2019.
I lost my job due to addiction and being able to enroll in Medicaid allowed me to receive critical inpatient treatment and medications. Medicaid also allowed me to have access to a network of resources and recovery support that I could not have found on my own.
Medicaid helps restore health and wellness to so many people like me.
Today, I work full time as a Chemical Dependency Counselor and I have health coverage through my employer, but it was Medicaid that threw me a lifeline and gave me my life back.
