Wyoming Lawmakers Advance Bill for Medicaid Work Requirements

A Wyoming bill requiring Medicaid recipients to work a set number of hours per week to receive benefits moved forward Friday in the state House.

The bill, which passed its first reading in the state House by a slim margin despite it being destined for failure moments before the vote, would require all “able-bodied” Medicaid recipients who are not disabled or are caretakers for children under six years old to work at least 20 hours a week to receive benefits, the Casper Star Tribune reported.

A similar bill proposed in 2018 passed the state Senate but died in the state House, according to the Tribune.
