SCOTUS agrees to hear case on Medicaid work requirements

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case on the Trump administration’s push for Medicaid work requirements, though the issue could be moot when President-elect Joe Biden takes office (Source: “Supreme Court to hear case on Trump's push for Medicaid work requirements,” The Hill, Dec. 5).

The Trump administration earlier this year had appealed lower court rulings that found the requirements adopted by New Hampshire and Arkansas to be unlawful. More than 18,000 people lost coverage in Arkansas due to work requirements before they were halted by a lower court.

Medicaid work requirements have been a priority for the Trump administration, though the incoming Biden administration is expected to eliminate the rules while pushing to expand access to Medicaid.
