    WHY MEDICAL IS IMPORTANT

    I AM A SINGLE MOTHER OF 4 CHILDREN. TWO OF MY CHILDREN ARE SPECIAL NEED: ADHD, SPEECH DELAY AND MENTAL HEALTH. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THEY ARE HELP THROUGH OUT THEIR EARLY YEARS AS THEY BECOME ADULTS. I WAS NOT ABLE TO PROVIDED A RESPONSIBLE HEATH CARE COVERAGE DUE TO THE FACT THAT I DID NOT HAVE A JOB THAT WILL PROVIDE THIS; I WAS A PART TIME WORKER. I ALWAYS RELY ON MEDICAID FOR HELP. MEDICAID HAS BEING MY SUPPORT ON GIVING MY CHILDREN THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE HEALTH AND HAPPY, IN ADDRESSING ANY MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS AND PHYSICAL. CUTTING MEDICAL WILL AFFECT CHILDREN WITH MENTAL HEALTH AND WILL AFFECT OUR SOCIETY. IF WE CAN ADDRESS THIS MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AT AN EARLY AGE, WE WILL BE SAVING MONEY IN THE LONG RUN BECAUSE THESE CHILDREN WILL BE ABLE TO ADAPT TO THIS WORLD. THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE LESS HEALTH PROBLEMS, AND BE A PRODUCTIVE MEMBER OF OUR SOCIETY. NOT A PERSON WHO CONSTANTLY NEEDS HELP TO SURVIVE.
