Kansas’s efforts to punch holes in the safety net program Medicaid were blocked Monday by officials who said they would have been too punitive.

Kansas had sought a three-year lifetime limit on the benefits that ensure children, the poor, elderly, and the disabled can receive medical care.

We are one of five states — Wisconsin, Maine, Arizona and Utah — to request the lifetime limit for Medicaid, the program that Gov. Jeff Colyer renamed and revamped as KanCare when he was lieutenant governor under Sam Brownback.
