Trump regime approves New Hampshire's let unemployed get sick and die waiver

Center on Budget & Policy Priorities - The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has approved New Hampshire’s waiver proposal to take away Medicaid from people not working or engaged in qualifying work activities for 100 hours per month. Under the Obama Administration, CMS rejected a similar proposal from the state in 2016 after concluding that it would “undermine access, efficiency, and quality of care provided to Medicaid beneficiaries.” That earlier assessment was correct: rather than advance Medicaid’s core objectives as waivers are supposed to do, New Hampshire’s will reduce coverage and jeopardize the gains that the state has made since expanding Medicaid coverage to low-income adults under the Affordable Care Act.
