South Dakota Asks Trump Administration to Approve Medicaid Work Requirements for Parents, Caretakers

South Dakota health officials are asking the Trump administration to approve a program that would impose work requirements on some Medicaid recipients who are parents or caretakers. Under the proposal, parents aged 19 to 59 and other caretakers on Medicaid who live in South Dakota's two most populous counties would have to work at least 80 hours a month, take classes, or complete other activities to keep their coverage. Those who don't meet the requirements for three months in one year lose their coverage. (Jessie Hellmann, The Hill)
