Update for Medicaid Expansion and Implementing the Work Requirements

October 15, 2018

The presentation made this morning to the House Appropriations Committee contains as clear a description as I have seen of the plans to implement the “work requirement” which the General Assembly imposed as a condition of granting expansion.¬† We have a long way to go until all of the pieces are in place. We will meet with the Workforce Development Advisor to try to expand their view of possibilities for job choices, while understanding that DSPs¬† who only work one job are probably eligible for the expanded Medicaid!
