Important Update about Kentucky HEALTH

Based on a recent legal decision, changes to Medicaid under Kentucky HEALTH will not begin on July 1, 2018 as planned.

What does this mean for me?

As of July 1, 2018, your medical benefits will continue as they are today with no change. However, if you received a notice saying you could access vision and dental services through a My Rewards Account, you will not have access to dental and vision benefits.  The legal decision has stopped the ability to use the My Rewards dollars in order to purchase dental and vision services.

What do I need to do?

You are not required to do anything at this time. You and your eligible family members can continue to access medically necessary and preventive healthcare services. If you have already paid your premium, you will get further information from your Managed Care Organization. 

You can still participate!

The Kentucky HEALTH program offers support and resources for those interested in improving their incomes and health. This ruling does not threaten the opportunities Kentucky HEALTH has already created. We look forward to offering these new resources to Kentuckians on a voluntary basis. 

You can log on to  Citizen Connect to take free online courses about health skills, life skills, and work skills. You can also visit the  Kentucky Career Center to find a career center near you, where a coach can help you find training, education, and job opportunities in your area.
