Trump Administration Appeals Ruling Against Medicaid Work Requirements

A federal judge's rulings that blocked work requirements in two states for some low-income people on Medicaid has been appealed by the Trump administration.

Under the requirements in Arkansas and Kentucky, "able-bodied" adult Medicaid recipients either had to work, study, volunteer or do other "community engagement" activities, the Associated Press reported.

Those requirements were blocked last month by Judge James Boasberg in Washington D.C.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Justice Department filed a notice of appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Arkansas also appealed, the AP reported.
