Pod favorite and BU public health and law professor Nicole Huberfeld makes a welcome return. We discuss Medicaid work requirements, lockouts, and health literacy testing, and reflect on the new CMS-imagined Medicaid space. As CMS blows past its traditional guardrails, we ask, what are the limits for post-ACA Medicaid, a tightly controlled welfare benefit rather than universality-enabling health insurance? Are Medicaid work requirements a kind of human subject experimentation, or something even worse?

We review administrative law as we discuss Nicole’s superb commentary on CMS’s authority to accelerate workhouse 2.0. We end our discussion by weighing the possible legal challenges to the recent Section 1115 waiver plans. Also, we try to stay cheerful!
