Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) is leading the Georgia Republican Congressional delegation in a letter to the Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, expressing concern with the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) recent decision to withdraw Georgia’s waiver that requires work-related activities as a condition of Medicaid eligibility for residents.

“As members of the Georgia Congressional delegation, we write to express our deep concern with the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) recent decision to withdraw certain authorities within the State of Georgia’s section 1115 demonstration project, 'Georgia Pathways to Coverage,' that would require work-related activities as a condition of Medicaid eligibility for its residents. Not only is this an inappropriate overreach by the federal government into an issue that has been within the purview of states to exercise discretion since 2018, but it is also incredibly counterproductive given that so many businesses are desperate for workers.”
