AMICUS: Georgia v. Brooks-LaSure,Southern District of Georgia, Brunswick Division
By: Litigation Team
In late 2021, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services rescinded its 2020 approval of work requirements and premiums in Georgia. Georgia filed suit to challenge the withdrawal. The National Health Law Program, along with the Southern Poverty Law Center, Georgians for a Healthy Future, Georgia Legal Services Program, the Georgia Interfaith Public Policy Center, and Atlanta Legal Aid Society filed an amicus brief in support of the defendants. The brief highlights the role of Section 1115 in the Medicaid program and the effect of premiums and work requirements on individuals who are eligible for Medicaid.
