Datapoint: CMS Pulls Work Requirements in Three More States
The Biden administration last week rescinded work requirement approvals in Ohio, South Carolina and Utah, according to letters sent by CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure to the states. The reform was never implemented in any of the states due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ohio currently serves 2,876,222 Medicaid beneficiaries to South Carolina’s 1,400,320, while Utah serves 348,385. Georgia is the last remaining state with a work requirement approval.
