Federal court rules against Trump administration's work requirements for Medicaid

A federal appeals court ruled Friday the Trump administration’s move to require work for Medicaid coverage violated federal law.

A unanimous three-judge panel from the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., upheld a lower court ruling, finding the Health and Human Services Department violated the Administrative Procedures Act in their implementation of the policy.

Ian Heath Gershengorn, who argued the case against the administration said he was pleased with the ruling.

“It makes it clear that the administration cannot simply ignore the devastating real-world consequences of its policies,” he said. “This is a victory for thousands of Americans who can now continue to have access to health coverage and health care.”
