Aug 29th 2017 4:41 pm Response: #310593 Why is the term "able bodied, (which is questionable) childless adults" being used as sort of an insult, as if this group is undeserving of health care (medicaid) where as people with children are worthy of health care? It seems that childless adults are being punished for being childless? I am against all the changes in HIP 2.0 especially the work requirement.
Aug 29th 2017 2:36 pm Response: #310585 I oppose the addition of a work requirement in any medicaid program because it will prove impossible to identify all the people who are unable to work due to health problems. There is no way to possibly guarantee that people who can not work due to health problems won't be subject to a work requirment as able bodied has no real definition. What if a person has health problems that are different day to day? Are they able bodied one day and disabled the next?
Aug 25th 2017 12:10 pm Response: #310525 Having to work to receive medicaid is one of the worst proposals Republicans have submitted yet in regards to healthcare.

Aug 24th 2017 3:13 pm Response: #310505 Study: Medicaid Expansion Is Leading To Fewer Requests For Disability Benefits

"Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act could save the government money by causing fewer people to sign up for disability benefits, according to a new study from Indiana University’s School of Public and Environmental Affairs.

The research team found a 3-4 percent reduction in the number of people receiving supplemental security income — which benefits disabled people with lower incomes — in states that expanded Medicaid."

Please take this into consideration when considering "work requirements". Work requirements are a bad idea!
Aug 24th 2017 1:31 pm Response: #310469 Medicaid is a national healthcare insurance program. It is not welfare. Why are republicans trying to make medicaid into a welfare program? Everyone should know this is what they are doing. Fundamentally altering medicaid to fit a conservative agenda at the risk of millions of peoples lives. Fix the individual market and leave medicaid alone!
