The lawsuit filed Monday in federal court in Washington comes after rulings in other lawsuits have blocked similar work requirements in Arkansas, Kentucky and New Hampshire.
Indiana’s program would require those who don’t qualify for exemptions to report 20 hours a month of work or related activity, or face coverage loss after Dec. 31.
The lawsuit filed by Indiana Legal Services, a nonprofit law firm, and the National Health Law Program, which advocates for low-income residents’ access to health care, argues that Indiana’s rules wrongly jeopardize health coverage for thousands of people.
