Report Looks at Work Requirements

As a growing number of states consider implementing work requirements as a condition for Medicaid eligibility, the Urban Institute has released a report that describes work requirements in various government cash assistance, nutrition assistance, and housing assistance programs and considers the degree to which those requirements have achieved their policy objectives.

The report also describes the applications that eight states have submitted to the federal government seeking permission to introduce a work requirement in their Medicaid programs.
