South Dakota Medicaid submits pilot project proposing work requirements

The Department of Social Services (DSS) has submitted a request to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for a five-year Medicaid 1115 demonstration waiver. The demonstration is a pilot project proposing work requirements for adults who are enrolled in Medicaid through the Low-Income Parent coverage group.

The program, called South Dakota Career Connector, will be administered by DSS in partnership with the Department of Labor & Regulation (DLR). The program includes intensive employment and training services and skill-building opportunities offered through DLR.
