In Michigan last month, Governor Snyder signed a similar bill. It requires all able-bodied Medicaid recipients work, or possibly lose their Medicaid benefits.
So how will the Kentucky decision impact the fate of Michigan’s law?
Gilda Jacobs, the president and CEO of Michigan’s League of Public Policy, joined Stateside today to talk about possible implications of this decision.
While she says it is too early to know for sure what will happen, Jacobs is hopeful it will have some impact on Michigan’s policy.
The bill imposing work requirements in Michigan “is really, a kind of very scary scenario” Jacobs said, because there are several scenarios that could trigger the end of the program, leaving hundreds of thousands of Michiganders without health insurance. July 4, 2018 – Michigan Radio
