In 2018, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) approved unprecedented Medicaid work requirements in a number of states. Multiple lawsuits were subsequently filed challenging the legality of the approvals. By June 2018, a federal court had struck down the first set of work requirements and the court is set to rule on a second set of work requirements in early 2019. This briefing, conducted by a lawyer working on the case, will provide an overview of the legal issues and arguments around Medicaid work requirements, as well as a description and update of the litigation thus far.
