Federal Panel Alarmed as Thousands Are Dropped From Medicaid in Arkansas

Members of a federal advisory panel expressed alarm this week that 4,350 low-income people in Arkansas had lost Medicaid coverage because they failed to show they were complying with new work requirements held up by the Trump administration as a model for the nation. "I hope these data scare the pants off people in Arkansas," said Dr. Christopher Gorton, a member of the panel, called the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission. The chairwoman of the panel, Penny Thompson, said the data—the first for any state enforcing a work requirement—were "very concerning" and "very worrisome." (Robert Pear, New York Times)
