Questionnaire NameAlabama Medicaid Workforce Initiative
DescriptionAlabama requests a new 5-year section 1115 demonstration which seeks to require community engagement as a condition of continued Medicaid eligibility for able-bodied parent or caretaker relative beneficiaries to improve beneficiary health outcomes and economic stability. Beneficiaries will be required to participate in 35 hours a week of community engagement activities unless the beneficiary is a parent or caretaker relative with a child under 6 years of age, lowering the requirement to 20 hours per week. Failure to comply with the requirements will result in termination of Medicaid benefits. The state is proposing a number of exemptions and exceptions. The federal public comment period will be open from September 21, 2018 through October 21, 2018.

I would like the state to reconsider the work requirement for parent/caretaker of a child under the age of 6. Unless the state is prepared to offer affordable childcare so that the individual can work then they are not going to successfully transition these groups to the workforce and the responsibility for their healthcare needs will fall on the community and local hospitals.
