Datapoint: Work Requirements Could Jeopardize Medicaid Coverage for 1.7M

House Republicans on April 26 passed debt-ceiling legislation that reintroduced Medicaid work requirements — a controversial Medicaid reform that was adopted by several states during the Trump administration — at the federal level. A new analysis from KFF, meanwhile, predicts that House Republicans’ Medicaid work requirements proposal would leave 1.7 million enrollees ineligible for Medicaid. Under the proposal, states could continue to cover enrollees who violate the work requirement, but they would have to cover 100% of their costs without federal help, which could ultimately shift $10.3 billion in spending to state governments, KFF projected. As of April 2023, 95.6 million people currently receive Medicaid benefits, a 29.6% increase from the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
