Kentucky became the first state in the nation to receive a federal waiver to require able-bodied Medicaid recipients to work, go to school, or engage in community service at least 20-hours per week. Gov. Matt Bevin said: "This marks the first significant change to a federal entitlement program in more than 20 years." It's a move he believes will provide a model for other states to follow.
No doubt, Gov. Matt Bevin’s proposed budget will undergo a major metamorphosis in the House and Senate over the next three months. Oftentimes, the makeover at the hands of lawmakers brings such radical change that the final version hardly resembles the original.
