I understand that there a babies born with deformed bodies and that these are real problems that need fixing. If a child makes it to adulthood in the original body form, then I believe it becomes a mental health problem.

I feel that the recipients of Medicare would be better served by completely covering vision, hearing and dental health, to include hearing aids, glasses or contact lenses and dentures. These things make it possible for senior adults to continue working and living a productive life instead of ending up on entitlement programs. I am still supporting myself fully at [PHI Redacted] years of age and will continue to do so until I cannot hear or see sufficiently to do a good job for my employer.

Thank you for reading this.
