New Hampshire Seeks to Defend Medicaid Work Requirements in Court


New Hampshire has filed an 1115 waiver with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, requesting to implement work requirements in the state’s Medicaid program, but it has been challenged in court by Medicaid enrollees who would be impacted by the work requirements. On Thursday, April 25, lawyers representing the state of New Hampshire filed court papers requesting to intervene in the lawsuit, which is currently pending before District Court Judge James Boasberg. Judge Boasberg is the same judge who recently invalidated the work requirements that CMS approved for both Arkansas and Kentucky. Aimed Alliance opposes the implementation of work requirements in state Medicaid programs and will be watching this case closely.
