In Arkansas and Kentucky, Federal judge vacates Medicaid work requirements

James Boasberg, a judge for the US District Court for the District of Columbia, issued two opinions on Wednesday blocking the Medicaid work requirements in Kentucky and Arkansas.
The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) approved Kentucky's work requirement plan in January 2018, but the plan has yet to go into effect. The plaintiffs are Kentucky residents who are receiving Medicaid.
