Healthcare Triage: Carrot vs Stick – The Social Safety Net, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and Work Requirements

In the next year and a half, we here at Healthcare Triage are going to take some deep dives into issues of health policy, especially those that touch on social determinants of health and health equity. The episodes that do so will be a bit longer than usual. They’ll look a little different. They also come to you thanks to the support of the RWJF, which has generously supported their creation. We’re excited about this opportunity to really dig in, and we hope you will be, too.

For the next three weeks, we’re going to talk about work requirements. First, we’ll talk about the basics and other government work promotion efforts, then we’ll discuss what we’ve learned from TANF, and finally, we’ll discuss what this might mean for Medicaid.

Work requirements are the topic of the next three episodes of HCT.
