In response to recent guidance from CMS (the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services) that encourages states to impose work requirements in their Medicaid programs, LAC and a number of our partners in the Reentry Working Group worked to develop a sign-on letter to the new Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services expressing our deep concern with the policy and detailing how harmful it will be for people with chronic illnesses, including mental health and substance use disorders, and people with criminal records.
To add your organization to the letter, which can be found here, please click here: https://goo.gl/forms/aWrB1p3BgfO3P3tR2. Deadline for signatures is Friday, February 9th at 5pm ET. Please share broadly with your networks and contact Gabrielle de la Gueronniere ([email protected]) with any questions. Thank you!
