Arizona is seeking to impose work requirements on many of its Medicaid beneficiaries under a new waiver submitted to the Trump administration this week.
The waiver would require able-bodied adults between the ages of 19 and 55 with certain exemptions to work, attend school or go to employment support and development programs for at least 20 hours a week.
Those who fall under the requirements would have six months to meet them before losing coverage, though they could re-enroll after complying.
The state is also proposing to impose a five-year lifetime limit on Medicaid for able-bodied people.
Arizona submitted a similar waiver last year, but it was rejected by the Obama administration.

“The state is also proposing to impose a five-year lifetime limit on Medicaid for able-bodied people.”
What if they have a full-time job, but qualify anyway?
And what full time job would that be? There isn’t any as you describe that I know of.
The current Medicaid eligibility level for a single individual is $16,643.
An adult working 40 hours a week at the minimum wage would make $15,080, assuming he worked every day of every week.
So what is the problem?
Check your math.
Minimum wage in 2018 in AZ $10.50/hr.
40 hours a week for 52 weeks = $21,840 per year
