Kansas Governor seeks to block grant Medicaid and cuts services

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has written HHS Secretary Sebelius requesting a waiver of the Medicaid maintenance of effort (MOE) requirements and a full Medicaid block grant. The MOE requirements are in place to make sure that states do not drop people from eligibility before the Medicaid Expansion takes place in 2014. Many Republican Governors have asked for the flexibility of a block grant so that they can cut the Medicaid program and not comply with the regulations.
