Lawsuit Update: Georgia’s Medicaid Work Requirement Goes Into Effect July, 1 2023


On August 2022, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia sided with the State of Georgia holding that the rescission of the 1115 waivers was arbitrary, and that CMS failed to consider that rescinding the program could mean less Medicaid coverage in Georgia. CMS has declined to appeal the decision.  As a result, Georgia’s Medicaid work requirement program is set to take effect July 1, 2023.  Review our lawsuit tracker to learn more about Medicaid work requirements, available here.
