Stewart v. Hargan, Lawsuit Challenging Kentucky Medicaid Waiver Project

Executive Summary

Representing 15 Medicaid beneficiaries in Kentucky, the National Health Law Program (NHeLP), the Kentucky Equal Justice Center (KEJC), and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) sued the Trump administration today in federal court for its approval of a state Medicaid waiver project that will cause nearly 100,000 hard-working Kentuckians to lose health care coverage.  “Through imposition of premiums and cost sharing, ‘lockouts,’ benefits cuts, and a work requirement, the waiver will radically reshape Medicaid in a manner that, by the State’s own admission, will result in substantial reductions in coverage.”
