Biden rescinds Medicaid work rules in 2 more states

Listen

President Joe Biden moved to unwind Medicaid work requirements in Michigan and Wisconsin, after pulling the rules in Arkansas and New Hampshire.

CMS sent letters to health officials in Michigan and Wisconsin April 6 withdrawing their approval to implement work requirements for Medicaid beneficiaries. In both letters, CMS noted that combined with the COVID-19 pandemic, the work rules risk "significant coverage losses and harm to beneficiaries."

In March, the Biden administration revoked approval for similar Medicaid work requirements in Arkansas and New Hampshire.
