Groups Speak Out Against Medicaid Work Bill

WV Metro News – A bill in the House of Delegates that would result in work requirements for people on Medicaid has sparked much debate. Read full article.

Groups in the state are coming out against HB 3136, that originated in the House Finance Committee last week.

“It will cost us millions in administrative costs,” Kat Stoll, the director of Health Policy at West Virginians for Affordable Healthcare said on Monday’s MetroNews ‘Talkline.’ “It’s going to cost us millions in lost federal dollars in support of our economy and it’s going to hurt our families, our hospitals and rural providers.”

West Virginians for Affordable Health Care, West Virginians Together for Medicaid and the West Virginia Center on Budget & Policy held a news conference Monday afternoon at the Capitol to speak against the bill.
