WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Kentucky on Friday became the first U.S. state to require that Medicaid recipients work or get jobs training, after gaining federal approval for the fundamental change to the 50-year-old health insurance program for the poor.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued policy guidance on Thursday allowing states to design and propose test programs with such requirements.



Kentucky’s waiver, submitted for federal approval in 2016, requires able-bodied adult recipients to participate in at least 80 hours a month of “employment activities,” including jobs training, education and community service.

The Kentucky program also imposes a premium on most Medicaid recipients based on income. Some who miss a payment or fail to re-enroll will be locked out for six months. The new rules will take effect in July, Kentucky state officials said.

“Kentucky will now lead on this issue,” Governor Matt Bevin said at a news conference on Friday. “They want the dignity associated with being able to earn and have engagement in the very things they’re receiving,” he said of Medicaid recipients.

Democrats and health advocacy groups blasted the federal policy on Thursday, saying it would make it tougher for the most vulnerable Americans to have access to healthcare. The Southern Poverty Law Center liberal advocacy group said it planned to file a legal challenge.

The rules apply to those between 19 and 64 years old. Certain groups are exempt, including former foster-care youth, pregnant women, primary caregivers of a dependent, full-time students, the disabled and the medically frail. The Trump administration also said states would have to make “reasonable modifications” for those battling opioid addiction and other substance-use disorders.

Ohio has similar rules if you want to collect food stamps.

I find this very odd...a state literacy course? You have to prove that you can read?

Let’s start here in reviewing the new program.

There’s a “literacy” provision.

If you don’t work enough hours and lose coverage, you can get to see a doctor again if you can pass a state literacy course about health or money. ?2/

So basically it will do nothing from stopping these welfare queens from business as usual.

Yes Trump and the Republicans are doing their best to keep Kentucky "poor...and red".

The problem for them is that more and more of the Red state folks are waking up to see that the Republican party is not helping them and is actually pushing tax structures, and cutting medicaid, and social safety nets that are hurting them.

5* and pin request.

Cheap labor?

Maybe this is how they plan to replace the cheap labor of the immigrants they are sending away.

If someone has a lapse, they have to prove that they can read.

I'm sure the other states will follow suit quickly.

I think the logical explanation is that it's important that a person can read and understand written instructions on how to care for oneself health-wise and budget-wise. Because if they can't, then obviously someone else will have to read it to them and make them understand, which would cost money.

Where is the money better spent? Hiring someone to read instructions to a medicare recipient, or making them take a reading course so they can do it themselves?

I have to disagree that they will wake up. Maybe the independents & such that voted for trump, but republicans always vote against their own interests.

If Kentucky were run by Democratic libturds, they would just

Give hand outs . Free food, housing, medical and with no incentive

to get off assistance, thereby no self betterment and under the

slavery which is the basis of the Santa Clause democratic regime.

Just like Seattle where you collect yours.

I guess I have to side with hope and the fact that Trump/Ryan/Republicans are so unpopular and that will translate into votes against republican policies that have gutted KY and left it bankrupt and miserable for so long under republican rule and the most failed of all time "experiments" in trickle down economic misery.
