Biden Administration Asks the U.S. Supreme Court to Cancel Appeal in Medicaid Work Requirement Case
On Monday, February 22, 2021, the Acting Solicitor General, Elizabeth Prelogar, asked the U.S. Supreme Court to cancel oral argument, scheduled for March 29, 2021, in a case dealing with a Medicaid work requirement imposed by the Trump administration.
The Trump administration had approved a work requirement pilot program in Arkansas and New Hampshire, but the programs were stopped by lower court actions. The actions were appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court by the Trump administration.
The Biden administration is currently in the process of reversing the work requirement program. Hence, the Acting Solicitor General asked the U.S. Supreme Court to consider canceling all pending cases dealing with the issue.
