Aug 18th 2018 11:00 pm Response: #367809 I disagree with the waiver that Kentucky is proposing. All it does is place roadblocks to health care for people that need it the most. It does NOT improve people's health.

Aug 18th 2018 10:59 pm Response: #367801 I strongly urge you to deny Kentucky’s 1115 waiver application. I’m deeply concerned that adding work requirements for Medicaid enrollees will threaten the lives of blood cancer patients by introducing another barrier to treatment. Medicaid reporting requirements could lead to serious gaps in coverage for blood cancer patients, for whom a disruption in care can lead to their illness relapsing or worsening.

This policy would set a dangerous precedent nationwide and jeopardize coverage for patients in Kentucky and beyond, and does not align with Medicaid’s core objective of providing coverage.

Aug 18th 2018 10:53 pm Response: #367789 A lot has been made over the blocking of access through work requirements, but remember, it’s not just the work requirements...it’s premiums, and copayments, and reporting, and penalties, and lockouts, and fake rewards dollars and jumping through hoops to go get your teeth fixed. All things that will reduce access to health care, increase the churn on and off Medicaid, resulting in 100k-300k people heading back to ERs for care—or no care at all—because of a short-sighted, knee-jerk, evidence-free hypothesis that merely saying “get a job” will fix all the economic woes faced by the state. Stable jobs with insurance will magically appear? Unemployment will reduce in the mountains? Persistent poverty will disappear? That’s some expensive wishful thinking!
