Datapoint: Biden Admin Nixes Work Requirements in Two States

The Biden administration last week quietly rescinded Medicaid work requirement approvals in Arkansas and New Hampshire, according to letters sent by CMS to the states. The U.S. Supreme Court was supposed to hear oral arguments related to the controversial reforms touted by the Trump administration next week, but recently removed the hearing from its docket, suggesting that previous rulings striking down work requirements could stand. Arkansas, which currently serves 853,216 Medicaid beneficiaries, was the only state to ever fully implement a work requirement. About 18,000 people lost coverage over a six-month period before a D.C. district court judge blocked the rule in March 2019.
