I Oppose Medicaid Work Requirements

Dear [Decision Maker],

Why do I oppose the new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) policy that allows states to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients?

This policy would force people who receive healthcare benefits from the government to go back to work, which is a reasonable idea on its face, but many recipients face legitimate physical, medical, and psychological barriers to reentering the workforce, all of which must be taken into consideration before denying a patient privileges.

it's critical to treat the whole patient, and not rely solely on a single doctor's visit, to determine whether he/she is not just surviving but thriving. We urge the government to not cut-off services to those most critically in need of help.
