As Indiana stands to become one of the first states in the nation to require many of its Medicaid recipients to work or volunteer to receive benefits, we must ensure the program is a win-win for participants and the communities where they live.

It will take substantive programming around the 80 hours per month requirement for able-bodied people to either work or perform community service to do that. By tying volunteerism to getting people job skills and into the workforce, a path to self-sufficiency is forged.
