About 600,000 people would become uninsured under the House Republican debt bill's plan to impose Medicaid work requirements, the Congressional Budget Office estimated April 26, reports Axios. The federal government would save $109 billion over a decade by making Medicaid recipients work 80 hours a month, CBO estimated. States would also have to pick up more of the cost for another 900,000 Medicaid enrollees who would lose federal funding for not complying with the work requirement, the report says.
