In order to qualify for Medicaid in MS as a low-income caretaker, a person with one dependent can not receive more than $306 per month in income.

The decision marks a dramatic shift for Kentucky, which embraced former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act under its last governor, a Democrat, and won praise for posting some of the largest gains in getting its residents insured.

The state's previously submitted proposal would require enrollees in Arkansas Works - the state's expanded Medicaid program - to spend at least 80 hours a month on work or approved activities, such as taking classes, looking for jobs or volunteering.

Bevin has said that the system can not continue as it has because it costs too much, ignores private market dynamics and fails to prepare Kentuckians for self-sufficiency.

Verma, who served as a Medicaid consultant for IN and Kentucky before joining the Trump administration, has long advocated for work requirements.

Yarmuth in a press release called the move "an unconscionable attack on our state's health".

"With federal approval of our Medicaid waiver, Kentucky will lead the nation in constructive changes to Medicaid", said Gov. Bevin.

Under Bevin's Democratic predecessor, Gov. Steve Beshear, Kentucky embraced Medicaid expansion and was viewed as a national model for its implementation of the ACA. "We want people to be healthy so they can work, and if we take away their health coverage they're going to get sicker and not going to be able to work". "Make no mistake: People will die because of this". Kentucky's new program will improve the health of its participants, strengthen Medicaid's long-term fiscal sustainability, and promote personal responsibility for health and well-being. The state predicts that a full 15 percent of its Medicaid beneficiaries will lose their coverage within five years of the waiver's implementation. It's largely based on the not-entirely-true assumption that people on welfare are simply refusing to work, rather than failing to find it or keep it for all kinds of reasons you can't fix simply by changing incentives. "These radical and counterproductive changes will result in almost 100,000 Kentuckians losing coverage". Lawsuits are expected shortly, because the 1115 waiver has historically required that states show how their use will expand access to health coverage; The Washington Post reported Friday afternoon that aides to Bevin projected the Medicaid rolls would decline by about 95,000 people over the 5-year period.

Trump Administration Clears Way To Require Work For Some Medicaid Enrollees
As of October 2017, almost 75m individuals were enrolled in Medicaid and the children's health insurance program (Chip). The move is expected to impact millions of Americans who rely on the state-federal program to help get health coverage.

However, North Carolina now has a pending Section 1115 Waiver proposal before federal officials that would transform Medicaid.

Kentucky has been the site of ongoing battles over health care.

Putnam said the federal match would be replaced in part by higher spending from private insurers because of a greater number of people on employer-sponsored plans. "Governor Scott will review any bill that reaches his desk", she said in an email.

"There are a lot of different ideas, and a lot of ways to go about this", she said.

Bevin said at a news conference that the plan will be phased in from July through November.

"However", he said, "we are concerned that the reporting system will become a burden on consumers and providers".

Verma stressed that the administration is providing an option for states to require work, not making it mandatory across the country. The regulation went into effect on November 16, 2016, and Medicare and Medicaid participating providers and suppliers must comply with the new regulations by November 16, 2017. It would be up to each state to implement these measures. Bevin said he expects it to be fully up and running by fall, however.
