Medicaid may require work, payments from the poor, as Indiana tried
INDIANAPOLIS — Katie Josway is a liberal musician and massage therapist in a conservative state that gave her health care coverage two years ago. She has to make monthly payments and can lose her plan if she misses one. She’s fine with that.
There’s a “common misperception” that people who need government assistance are looking for a handout, she says.
“We are all doing the best we can,” says Josway, who turns 31 Wednesday. “Instilling a little bit of accountability and cutting people a break where needed will lead to a better functioning and happier society.”
