Kentucky's health exchange, kynect, enrolled about 1,000 Kentuckians each day into new health coverage in its first month of operation -- about one-third of whom are under the age of 35.
kynect has been hailed as a national model since its launch Oct. 1 for its continuous smooth operation and easy interface for users looking for affordable health coverage.
"People who say the Affordable Care Act doesn't work need look no further than Kentucky. Not only is it working here, Kentuckians are still stampeding to the website and call center to find affordable health coverage," said Gov. Steve Beshear. "The fact that so many Kentuckians are actively seeking health coverage for themselves, their families and their employees tells us that kynect is meeting a gaping need in our state. At long last, every Kentuckian can finally find affordable health insurance."
