News Briefs: Centene to Sell Off Apixio
Based on estimates from the Congressional Budget Office, a new KFF analysis predicts that House Republicans’ Medicaid work requirements proposal would leave 1.7 million enrollees ineligible for Medicaid. The analysis noted that states could continue to cover enrollees who run afoul of work requirements, but they would have to cover 100% of their costs without federal help. If states did go that route, they could collectively face $10.3 billion worth of new costs in 2024. Republicans included Medicaid work requirements provisions in debt-ceiling legislation that passed the House on April 26, although the measure is not expected to clear the Democrat-controlled Senate.
