Medicaid and Work Requirements: Has Kentucky Gone Too Far?

posted on Tue, Jan 30 2018 1:14 pm by The Network for Public Health Law

Co-sponsored by the Network for Public Health Law and the National Health Law Program

The federal Medicaid agency has approved an 1115 waiver that will enable Kentucky to require many Medicaid beneficiaries to work in order to receive coverage.  The approval also imposes premiums on very low income people and introduces other eligibility requirements that previous Administrations have refused. Advocates quickly sued, arguing that the approval violates federal law.
