as a practicing optometrist for 40 years, the changes in medicaid by the affordable care act/Breshear administration have benefited more people with eye disease and vision problems than any other program except KCHIP...so many kentuckians have better vision and better eye health than ever before. These proposed changes would mean that more people would lose coverage...there would be more blindness and deaths. I also think about the requirement to report income changes. Personally, I am self employed so my income changes DAILY Most people on medicaid are already working at least one job or in nursing homes, so the community engagement requirement doesn't make sense to me.
