Undeterred by past defeats, members of PA’s state senate are again attempting to advance Medicaid work requirement legislation.
This time, the proposal to impose a Medicaid work requirement will add new flexibility to such a requirement, offering exemptions for individuals deemed “medically frail” and enabling individuals who do volunteer work, attend college, or who are actively looking for work to continue qualifying for Medicaid benefits.
The proposal will be considered by the Senate Health and Human Services Committee.
The legislature has passed two Medicaid work requirement bills in the past but Governor Tom Wolf has vetoed them.
