CMS Revokes Indiana and Arizona Work Requirement Waiver Approvals

Washington, DC – The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have officially revoked Indiana and Arizona’s work requirement waiver approvals, following other moves to roll back Trump era changes to Medicaid.

“We are encouraged that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) continues to review work requirement waivers approved by the Trump administration. These harmful waivers were not consistent with the objectives of the Medicaid Act as they would have resulted in critical coverage loss for low-income people in states across the country. We urge CMS to continue taking these important steps to ensure Medicaid’s goal of furnishing medical assistance to those in need.”

Work requirement waivers in Arkansas, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, and Michigan have also been revoked.
