  ACTIVITIES
Health Task Force
CCD has issued a response to the CMS guidance allowing states to impose barriers to Medicaid edibility in the form of work requirements.
The undersigned organizational members of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) and other supporting organizations write to express our strong opposition to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) January 11, 2017 guidance authorizing states to implement unprecedented work requirements for the Medicaid program, and its subsequent approval of Kentucky’s waiver application seeking to implement work requirements.
