Kentucky Sets the Example

On Jan. 12, the Trump administration approved Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin’s request to implement work requirements for able-bodied adults on Medicaid. The decision makes Kentucky the first state in the nation to win approval for these commonsense requirements.

Under the waiver, able-bodied adults on Medicaid will be required to work, train, or volunteer at least 20 hours per week as a condition of eligibility, mirroring work requirements in the food stamps program, which were created as part of the bipartisan welfare reform passed in the 1990s.
