Mariah, Greene County

Mariah is a 25 year-old single mom whose 6-year old daughter was cut from Medicaid. She took her daughter to her bi-annual dentist appointment last March, only to be told her Medicaid was inactive. “Katrina looked forward to seeing her dentist and was so sad when we were shut down.” Her daughter had to go without her dentist appointment and her yearly health checkup. Mariah still has health insurance through her dad until she turns 26, but cannot afford health insurance for her daughter. “I was not sent any information about why she was dropped, I just want Medicaid for my daughter.”
