Should able-bodied Medicaid enrollees have to work to get federal health insurance?
Lawmakers want to tweak constitutional amendment adopted in November
PIERRE — South Dakota voters could see the topic of Medicaid expansion on their ballots again in 2024.
When they adopted Constitutional Amendment D in November and added an estimated 42,000 able-bodied adults to the federal health insurance program, they also approved language that prohibits the state from adding work requirements to Medicaid eligibilities.
But a proposed ballot measure aims to repeal that provision of South Dakota’s Medicaid program.
