Open enrollment for Medicare is October 15 through December 7. Plans will go in effect January 1. The Kentucky State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) is a free service that provides information, counseling and assistance to seniors and disabled individuals needing to sign up for Medicare. SHIP doesn't sell health insurance products, but offers guidance. Program Coordinator Kellie Oliver joins Kate Lochte on Sounds Good to explain the upcoming open enrollment.

Murray State University employees will have to wait a little longer in order to sign up for open enrollment for their health plans.


Kentuckians on Medicaid now have the opportunity to change healthcare providers for the first time in months.
