If a player is picked up on waivers, do they have to go on waivers again?

Yes - there is no indication that anything has changed from the last CBA in this case.
If a team claims a player on waivers and then subsequently wants to send him down, he would have to clear waivers again.
The only exception is in the case where a team claims a player that they lost on waivers previously that season AND they are the only team to put in a claim - then they may send him down without waivers. This is to prevent a team from perpetually blocking another team from sending down a player by continually claiming and then re-waiving the player.
