A new issue brief from Families USA analyzes the effectiveness of Medicaid work requirements. The issue brief examines what has happened in states such as Arkansas and whether the work requirements have accomplished their stated goal of getting Medicaid recipients back to work. The brief demonstrates that the work requirements have only served to reduce Medicaid enrollment and not increase workforce participation. Using the article published by the CHRIL, the brief also points out that the work requirements actually work in contradiction to the fact that Medicaid actually supports employment, especially for people with disabilities. Finally, the issue brief points out that these work requirements only serve to increase the administrative burden on the state attempting to implement them.
