A federal judge has blocked the implementation of New Hampshire's Medicaid work requirement.

 

The ruling reverses a move by the Trump administration that allowed New Hampshire to impose a 100-hour a month work requirement on beneficiaries of expanded Medicaid.

 

In his ruling, U.S. District Court Judge James Boasberg said the federal government failed to adequately consider the potential for the work requirement to kick significant numbers of people off of Medicaid.

 

The state of New Hampshire intervened in the case to defend the work requirement.
