Verma: Court Ruling Won't Close Door on Other Medicaid Work Requests

A federal judge's decision to bar Kentucky from imposing a work requirement on Medicaid recipients won't discourage the Trump administration from considering similar requests from other states, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma said Tuesday at the POLITICO Pro summit. "We are very committed to this," Verma said. "We are looking at what the court said. We want to be respectful of the court's decision while also wanting to push ahead with our policy initiatives and our goals. … We are trying to figure out a path forward." Work requirements have already been approved in Arkansas, Indiana, and New Hampshire, while Arizona, Maine, Wisconsin, and Utah are waiting to hear from CMS. (Dan Goldberg, Politico)
