The National Women’s Law Center, the Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and firm partner Holland & Knight filed amicus briefs in appeals of two decisions that struck down changes to the Medicaid programs in Arkansas and Kentucky that require beneficiaries to work to retain health coverage.

 

The briefs in Gresham v. Azar and Stewart v. Azar support the plaintiffs – Medicaid enrollees – who would suffer harm to their health and economic security should the work requirements be implemented.  The briefs focus on the particular harm the work requirements would cause women and communities or color. Please see NWLC’s fact sheet for more information about why Medicaid work requirements are illegal and will harm, not help, Medicaid enrollees.
