Letter: Why won't any dentist see me?

Most dentists won't see BadgerCare patients

EDITOR: As a resident of Wisconsin who has had the misfortune to have had to use BadgerCare for me and my family, I need to raise a very troubling concern. While trying to set a dental appointment I was asked if I was on BadgerCare. I said yes. I was then told that I needed to go to a dentist who sees BadgerCare patients, of which there are none within over a 30 minute drive.

I cannot drive.

I called another dentist and said I would pay cash. They asked me my name. I told them and they again proceeded to tell me what I had been told previously.

To me this is outrageous. This is a "medical necessity" that we can't even pay for out of our own pocket - yet those on food stamps or FoodShare can buy lobster, shrimp and tenderloin!

Let's hear all voices, not just those like mine of the people who are being discriminated against, but by those of you who feel the state needs to spend its money more wisely! If I can't even choose to pay for my own dental care in Wisconsin, it has to be discrimination! What else would you call it?
