Kansas Officials Looking To Make Work A Requirement For Some To Receive Medicaid Benefits.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas lawmakers are proposing a new version of the state's privatized Medicaid program that would require about 12,000 adults to work in order to qualify for benefits. 

The proposal was unveiled Friday as the state considers changes to a program that serves more than 400,000 residents.  

Currently, Kansas has no work requirement for Medicaid recipients and if this proposal is passed, Kansas would then be the first state in the country to require some to work for their Medicaid benefits.
