Instead, they create paperwork and other administrative hurdles designed to reduce enrollment. Similar requirements have a history of causing people who were still eligible to lose coverage because they were unable to submit the materials necessary to prove their eligibility. In , Washington State increased the number of times people had to submit paperwork to maintain their Medicaid coverage from once a year to twice a year, and enrollment in the program fell by more than 40, children a year.

The consequences of these sabotage efforts will hurt millions of American families by driving up their health care costs even further, gutting consumer protections and making it harder for people to sign up for comprehensive health care coverage. The good news is that the vast majority of the American people want to protect our care, not undermine it, and they want our elected leaders to find bipartisan solutions to lower costs.
