Work RulesJuly 16, 2018 |
by Bangor Daily News
On July 1, Kentucky planned to subject thousands of low-income residents who receive health coverage through the state’s Medicaid program to work requirements. They would risk losing coverage if they didn’t work, volunteer or enroll in job training for at least 80 hours a month. They would have to start paying premiums and face more stringent requirements for reporting any changes in income.
The state projected 95,000 people would lose their Medicaid coverage as a result of the policy change.
