Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyers proposed Medicaid work requirement would create a catch-22 for some low-income Kansans, according to a report released Tuesday.
The report, from the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities a nonpartisan research organization that supports Medicaid expansion said work requirements could jeopardize their coverage.
Medicaid recipients who fail to meet a work requirement would lose their coverage, said researcher Aviva Aron-Dine. But, she said, so would some of those who followed the rules and got jobs. Particularly in states like Kansas, that havent expanded Medicaid eligibility.
