Being a single parent of two wonderful kids, medical coverage would be out the question for my kids. My place of employment doesn't offer medical insurance unless you are an full time employee. The payment for the insurance would take most of my check just to have it all with the co-pay payments for each visits. I have another job that doesn't offer medical insurance at all. Without have medicaid me and my children wouldn't be able to have the medical attention that is needed in case of injury and everyday well child check ups. Medicaid is needed in my households for us to be able to productive citizens.
