Trump Administration Should Withdraw Rule That Would Deepen State Budget Crisis, Make Medicaid Cuts Likelier
Weakening continuous coverage would cause likely hundreds of thousands of people, including many who have recently lost their jobs, to lose coverage and become uninsured.

The proposed waivers are a lose-lose proposition for people with Medicaid and for states. They waivers would worsen people’s health by taking away coverage and reducing access to care.
