Re: Comments on Proposed Section 1115 Demonstration Work Requirements

Dear Sir or Madam: The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) writes regarding the Alabama Medicaid Agencys proposed Section 1115 Demonstration Application. We greatly appreciate this additional opportunity to submit comments on this critical issue that impacts Alabamians in every corner of our state. The SPLC is a non-profit legal organization based in Montgomery, Alabama, with additional offices across the Deep South. For over four decades, the SPLC has sought justice for and represented the needs of the most vulnerable members of our society. The SPLC is committed to protecting the social safety net for low-income people across America. With this commitment in mind, we previously recommended in submitted public comments (attached as Attachment A) that the Alabama Medicaid Agency withdraw the proposed Demonstration Application. For the reasons explained below and for those previously given, the SPLC continues to advocate for the withdrawal of the Demonstration Application. During the first state-level comment period, the proposal drew opposition from over 90 percent of commenters. Yet the Alabama Medicaid Agency has done very little, if anything, to rectify the concerns that so many people expressed. The primary change to the revised proposal is that the State has lengthened the amount of time beneficiaries qualify for Transitional Medical Assistance, from 6 months to 18 months. However, this change does nothing to address the root of the problem posed by proposed waiver: Any parent or caretaker who tries to comply with the work requirement by working 20 to 35 hours per week at minimum or low wages will make too much money to qualify for Alabamas Medicaid program, but too little to afford private insurance. In fact, the additional transitional coverage only

delays

the harm to Alabamas caretakers who will be subjected to the new work requirement, without providing any meaningful relief to help them cope with the ultimate loss of their coverage. Thus, thousands of Alabama caretakers will still have their healthcare coverage taken away, threatening the wellbeing of their families and children.
