“…She endured a number of life-saving medical procedures… Medicaid made [them] possible.”

“Katelyn was born, June 11, 2014, at 29 weeks premature… and was life-flighted to Primary Children’s Hospital where she was a patient in the NICU for two and a half months. During this stay she endured a number of life-saving medical procedures, including emergency surgery on her belly at five-days-old, and her first open-hear surgery at one-month-old, all procedures Medicaid made possible.

When Katelyn finally came home, we needed expensive Home Medicaid Care and medical equipment to help care for her. Thanks to the help of Medicaid we were able to get those things.

…If we were to lose Medicaid, we do not know how we would be able to pay the medical care our now three-year-old daughter needs to live a full, happy and productive life.
