Medicaid Waiver Tracker: Approved and Pending Section 1115 Waivers by State

Following up on preliminary letters sent to states with approved work requirements in February 2021, CMS sent letters notifying Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, New Hampshire, Ohio, South Carolina, Utah, and Wisconsin of its final decision to withdraw work requirement waiver authorities in these states. Also following the February preliminary letters, Nebraska withdrew its work requirement waiver. Medicaid work requirements had been a key Section 1115 waiver priority under the Trump Administration, which had approved work requirement waivers in some states (see table below). Although CMS under the Biden Administration has not yet acted on any pending work requirement waivers, it is expected to reject these requests.
