Stewart v. Azar, D.D.C. and D.C. Circuit

Executive Summary

Sixteen Kentuckians enrolled in Medicaid filed a class action lawsuit against the Trump administration challenging its approval of a section 1115 waiver, which would allow sweeping changes to Kentucky’s Medicaid program, including work requirements, premiums, lockouts, and other changes, that will terminate Medicaid coverage of tens of thousands of low-income individuals and families in the State.
