The D.C. District Court struck down the work reporting requirements in the Arkansas Works Medicaid program. Despite the good news, the work is not done.

Legal Aid of Arkansas is promoting a new education campaign designed by the Federal Trade Commission to enlist people over 65 in the effort to recognize and report frauds and scams.

In 2018, Arkansas became the first state to put work reporting requirements in Medicaid. In the first five months of the requirements, 18,164 people lost insurance because they went three months without reporting. Consistent health coverage is needed for people on Arkansas Works to be healthy enough to work and make a better life.
