It also states explicitly that states can't get federal Medicaid money for services like childcare and transportation that people might need to get back to work. The report notes that implementing the work requirements "can be error prone", resulting in some people being denied benefits they should get and others receiving benefits they're not really eligible for. It's a big change from the Obama administration, which rejected overtures from states that wanted to add a work requirement.
