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 (a Kentucky HEALTH/ Medicaid participant)?
As of July 1, 2018, your medical benefits will continue as they were prior to July 1, 2018, 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 income 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.
