CBPP Press Call: Kentucky’s Medicaid Waiver: What it Means for Kentucky and for Other States

On Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 1:00 pm ET, experts from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) and the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families will hold a joint press call to discuss the approval of Kentucky’s Medicaid waiver, which allows the state to make a number of damaging changes to its Medicaid program, including making the state the first allowed to make participation in work or work-related activities a requirement for Medicaid eligibility.

The proposal also has implications for other states such as Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, and Utah where similar — and in some cases even harsher — proposals are pending.

The call will be on the record with Judy Solomon, CBPP Vice President for Health Policy, and Joan Alker, Executive Director of the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families.

After opening remarks, Solomon and Alker will take questions.
