Joint Senate Committees to Study Medicaid Work Requirements

0 199

The Senate Majority Policy Committee and the Senate Health and Human Services Committee will hold a workshop on work requirements for able-bodied, non-elderly Medicaid recipients. This workshop will take place on Wednesday, June 12, from 9:30 am to 11:00 am in Room 8 EB in the East Wing of the Capitol Complex in Harrisburg. “Medicaid is one of the most expensive programs in the state and costs are projected to continue to rise,” said Senate Majority Policy chairman David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks). “Right now we have 486,000 non-disabled, non-elderly Medicaid recipients in Pennsylvania who are not working. We are not trying to drag somebody out of a treatment facility or force great-grandma to work in a coal mine. Rather, our goal is to come together and discuss this issue thoroughly with professionals so that we can come to a meaningful compromise to address this issue.”

If you are in the Harrisburg area and your schedule permits, please attend this workshop. Questions, please contact Jack Phillips.
