As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
Nearly 17,000 people have lost Medicaid in Arkansas after they failed to meet the state’s new work requirements.
State data show that 4,655 people were dropped from Medicaid in November after they failed to report to the state whether they had worked or trained for work for at least 80 hours a month, for three months in a row. That brings the total number of people dropped from Medicaid to nearly 17,000 people because of rules that began in June, which imposed requirements to work, volunteer, or take classes as a condition of staying enrolled in the program.
The article goes on to state the following:
People on Medicaid in Arkansas have to log their hours online, and if they fail to do so, they are taken out of the program and are not allowed to re-enroll until the following year. Arkansas officials announced last week that on Dec. 19 they will start letting people on Medicaid report their work requirements by phone, saying they wanted to see more people participate in the program.
