Georgia on July 1 implemented its partial Medicaid expansion — which also comes with a work requirement. The program, Pathways to Coverage, allows uninsured able-bodied adults living at or below the federal poverty line to become eligible for Medicaid benefits if they participate in 80 or more hours per month of work, volunteering, school or another qualifying activity. The Trump administration approved the program in October 2020, and Georgia is now the only state in the country to tie a work requirement to Medicaid coverage. Georgia currently serves 2,887,544 Medicaid beneficiaries, with 77.0% enrolled in managed care plans. The state estimates about 100,000 additional lives would enroll in Medicaid under Pathways to Coverage, according to the Associated Press.
