Kentucky is awesome! They are taking charge! While it does need HHS final approval- Congratulations to Governor Matt Bevin and the people of Kentucky! You’re on foot for a sound solution for the people of Kentucky!!
“Under Bevin’s proposal, individuals within 138 percent of the federal poverty level would remain eligible for Medicaid, receiving the same insurance coverage as state employees. Enrollees could also earn additional coverage, such as dental or vision coverage, through a rewards program that would award volunteering or taking steps to better one’s health.
“Eligible enrollees between 34 percent and 138 percent of the federal poverty level would also be required to pay some premiums, for some people as little as $1 per month, to encourage enrollees to be involved in their own health coverage…
“The proposal also clarifies that children, pregnant women, medically frail people and adults eligible for Medicaid before expansion won’t see their benefits change, and that full-time students and people working more than 20 hours per week meet the the community engagement and employment requirements laid out in the proposal.”
