I live in Bell County and Medicaid saved my life. Medicaid saved my life. Had surgery I wouldn't have gotten to have otherwise without surgery. Found a tumor at age 26 that would have killed me. These changes will either kill us or ruin our quality of our already terrible lives, would take away even our health, or our right to be healthy. Opioid epidemic, hep c, and now we won't even have any sort of help other than running emergency room bills for bronchitis. I'll pretend that the Bevin administration cares about the health and quality of life of those of us in Eastern Kentucky even though I know better... How many times has the administration even been here? We are a statistic to you, and easier to kick off medicaid and let die and tell yourself you did something, because we won't be visible anymore. We can't complain about these changes once you kill us by making them. Great plan. The Bevin administration doesn't care if poor people die. I live in Eastern Kentucky. I will always be below the poverty line. There's no job for me that will ever change that. Community engagement of what? There's nothing here but pills and depression. No jobs, no money, just waiting for help that'll never come.
