Don’t let the GOP health care bill distract you from this potentially devastating change already underway.

With the House passage of a bill to get rid of Obamacare, everyone interested in the fate of the American health care system is watching the Senate to see what its version of the American Health Care Act will look like. Meanwhile, a less-noticed change to federal health care rules could pull insurance from some of the most vulnerable people in the country without any congressional action at all.

A growing number of states, in collaboration with the Trump administration, are pushing to deny Medicaid benefits to many people who don’t have jobs.

“The work requirements are important. They’re something that is restorative to people’s self-worth,” Tom Price, President Donald Trump’s Health and Human Services secretary, said in March. “We believe it’s important for folks to have a job, that they contribute not just to society but they contribute to their own … well-being.”
