Trump signs executive order to address Medicaid eligibility
On April 10, President Trump signed an executive order to direct the appropriate federal agencies to review policies related to work requirements for individuals participating in Medicaid and other safety-net programs. Agencies have 90 days to provide recommendations that strengthen existing requirements.
Why is this important?
The executive order could result in recommendations that restrict access to care for Medicaid recipients. It is important to be aware of how these recommendations might affect your state's Medicaid requirements.
