Datapoint: Biden Administration Pulls Work Requirements in Michigan, Wisconsin
The Biden administration last week nixed Medicaid work requirement approvals in two more states — Michigan and Wisconsin. The news comes just three weeks after Biden’s CMS pulled the controversial Medicaid reform in Arkansas and New Hampshire. Implementation of Wisconsin’s work requirement was already on hold as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, while Michigan’s were blocked by a federal judge two months after they went into effect in January 2020. Wisconsin currently enrolls 1,108,482 Medicaid beneficiaries, to Michigan’s 2,663,882.
