The definition of "condition of eligibility for certain individuals" is unclear, but in a general sense, community involvement for those able is a GREAT idea. This is one step in the right direction for the unity of a currently divided country. This is one possible solution, as are the current administration proposals, in the effort to cut Medicaid Program costs for "lifetime" welfare recipients. I have accepted community healthcare and food services for approximately 4 years following a crisis currently seeking employment, but during this chapter of my life, I have witnessed a high percentage of "welfare" recipients that have settled into public funding support as a way of life. That is not why the programs were originally created and the healthcare system is overloaded with takers who are capable of giving back in some way. Carry on. I hope the proposal is successful.
