Work Requirements Would Cut Medicaid for Older Adults

The House of Representatives is planning to vote on a bill that would severely cut spending and take away food assistance and Medicaid from older adults. The “Limit, Save, Grow Act of 2023” would require states to implement work requirements in Medicaid as a condition of federal funding and expand work requirements in the SNAP program to older adults ages 50 to 55, cutting their grocery assistance and harming their families.

Justice in Aging’s new fact sheet, Medicaid Work Requirements: Red Tape That Would Cut Health Coverage for Older Adults, explains how these so-called “community engagement requirements”—which are work requirements—would create red tape and take away Medicaid coverage from many older adults, people with disabilities, and family caregivers age 55 and younger. We’ve seen this plan before and we know the result: people will lose Medicaid as they did in states that temporarily put Medicaid work requirements in place during the Trump Administration.
