Important information about health insurance for you and

your family from the Affordable Care Act

Kentuckians who are uninsured or self-employed now are able to buy health insurance through the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange called KYNECT. Some Kentuckians, depending on their income, also may be eligible for financial help to pay for this insurance. Others may qualify for Medicaid coverage (at no cost). Now health insurance cannot be denied or cancelled and the amount you pay cannot be based on your health condition.

You can enroll in these new options now. You only have to fill out one application through KYNECT to find out the insurance options and financial help (if any) available to you. Help is available online, over the phone or in person. You can find out more at www.kynect.ky.gov or by calling 1-855-459-6328. If you need help in a language other than English, tell the operator, and you will be connected to a translation resource.

If you are not a resident of Kentucky, your can go to the federal Health Benefit Exchange at: http://www.healthcare.gov . Moreover, if you are unsure if you are eligible for health care due to your status, the operator will be able to connect you to someone who can help. For more information in English: 1-800-318-2596
