Appeals court rejects Trump approved Medicaid work requirement

A federal appeals court on Friday ruled against Trump-approved Medicaid work requirements in Arkansas, the latest legal setback to the administration’s efforts to remake the safety net health care program.

A three judge panel in a unanimous ruling said HHS didn't have the authority to require some Medicaid enrollees to work in order to receive coverage.

The decision, which upheld a lower court ruling against the work requirements, brings the Trump administration’s Medicaid overhaul closer to possible review from the Supreme Court. For the first time in Medicaid’s history, the administration has allowed states to condition coverage for some enrollees on whether they work or participate in a similar activity, like job training, volunteering or attending school.
