A recent article by PYA Consulting Manager Katie Culver has been published by Becker’s Hospital Review. “Medicaid work requirements: What they mean for your healthcare organization,” explores state-imposed individual work or job training requirements as a condition of receiving Medicaid, and what effect such stipulations will have not only on patient populations, but on hospitals, health systems, and state hospital associations.
“Medicaid work requirements are quickly permeating Medicaid legislation in several states. For this reason, it is vitally important hospitals and health systems are mindful of changes to state-specific Medicaid legislation and vocalize implications to their patient population to governmental officials with decision-making authority. Further, hospitals and health systems should continually evaluate Medicaid development strategies as Medicaid legislative changes may negatively impact a hospital or health system’s bottom line.”
Becker’s Hospital Review features up-to-date information and legal news and analysis for leaders in the healthcare industry. Read the full article here.
