Mississippi to Test Limits of Medicaid Work Requirements

The Trump administration is facing a key test with Mississippi's Medicaid program as the state seeks permission to be the first ever to impose work requirements without expanding Medicaid under Obamacare.  Already one of the poorest states in the nation, advocates say work requirements for "able-bodied" beneficiaries could decimate the health coverage that tens of thousands of residents depend on.
