Recently Approved and Pending Medicaid Waivers and Their Implications

Earlier this month, the federal Medicaid agency issued a letter allowing states to condition Medicaid eligibility on work requirements. It then approved a waiver application from Kentucky that includes a work requirement along with other features that will reduce coverage. This webinar discusses the waiver authority, focusing on the history and current status of pending waiver requests, and the legal issues raised by them.
