State officials say another 3,800 enrollees fail work requirement, lose health care coverage

Once work requirements are fully implemented, all Arkansas Works enrollees who are ages 19-49 must work or engage in specified educational, job training, or job search activities for at least 80 hours per month to remain covered through Arkansas Works, unless they meet exemption criteria established by the State. Those who do not report 80 hours per month of work or other qualifying activities for three months will lose their Medicaid coverage and be barred from the program for the remainder of the calendar year. Work, school, volunteering, and job search (up to 39 hours per month) are qualifying activities. By exempting adults with children or older than 49, Arkansas’ Medicaid work requirement roughly parallels the work requirements that apply in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for able-bodied adults without dependents
