Rep. Harris Releases Statement on Medicaid Work Requirement Proposals

January 11, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC: On January 11, Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) released the following statement regarding the announcement that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will now accept proposals from individual states to implement work and community engagement requirements for able-bodied, working age Medicaid recipients:

“I applaud the Trump Administration’s decision to accept state proposals for Medicaid work and community engagement requirements for able-bodied, working age recipients. Entitlement programs like Medicaid were designed to provide temporary assistance, but have become laden with waste, fraud, and abuse. Work and community engagement requirements will encourage Medicaid recipients to continue pursuing new opportunities for success - so they can get the hand-up that they need.”
