U.S. District Judge James Boasberg today blocked Medicaid work requirements in Michigan, citing an appeals court decision last month that affirmed his decision blocking Medicaid work requirements in Arkansas. Boasberg also previously blocked Medicaid work requirements in Kentucky and New Hampshire. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services had authorized Michigan to require able-bodied adults aged 19 to 62 to work or participate in training or community service an average 80 hours per month to continue qualifying for Medicaid under the Healthy Michigan Plan beginning in 2020.
