Kentucky Not on Federal Exchange Premium List, But Kynect Releases Range of Prices
Updated: Sept. 26, 11:09 a.m.
The Department of Health and Human Services released insurance premium prices for federally-run exchanges today, including Tennessee, showing premiums in some states are lower than initially estimated. But Kentucky’s exchange called kynect is state-run and wasn’t on that list.
Kynect has released the actual costs and range of plans for certain hypothetical situations. Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services spokesperson Gwenda Bond says people can find out their individual costs beginning Oct. 1, which is the first day to apply for open enrollment.
Bond says all but 50,000 of the more than 600,000 uninsured Kentuckians will qualify for either the Medicaid expansion or premium subsidies through kynect.
