NHeLP Letter to CMS Regarding Work Requirements

Executive Summary

In an unprecedented move, HHS issued a letter announcing its intention to approve state requests to impose work requirements on Medicaid enrollees. NHeLP responded swiftly, submitting a letter to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), explaining why the radical shift in Medicaid policy is procedurally and substantively flawed. Further, the few studies CMS cites to support work requirements do not backup CMS’s conclusion that any and all work produces positive health outcomes.
