A federal court in Georgia has set aside a decision by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that had rescinded the work requirement and premium components of a section 1115 Medicaid project. The US Department of Justice did not appeal the ruling. Georgia becomes the only state in the country currently allowed to implement a Medicaid work requirement. This issue brief reviews the case, Georgia v. Brooks-LaSure, No. 2:22-cv-6, 2022 WL 3581859 (S.D. Ga. Aug. 19, 2022).
