More than 12,000 Medicaid beneficiaries in Arkansas have lost coverage for not complying with the state’s work requirements, according to data released by the state on Thursday.

In the past month alone, 3,815 beneficiaries lost coverage for failing to meet the work requirements for three straight months. 

 

Arkansas began phasing in work requirements for Medicaid beneficiaries in August. In the three months the requirements have been in effect, 12,128 people were removed from Medicaid and are locked out until Jan. 1.

 

In addition, there are 6,002 people with two strikes against them who are at risk for losing coverage next month.

 

Arkansas became the first state ever to implement work requirements, after gaining approval from the Trump administration earlier this year.
