Over a 10-day period beginning Thanksgiving week, Kentucky’s health benefits website, kynect, saw a 16 percent increase in enrollments – adding more than 11,000 Kentuckians to the ranks of the newly insured in just over a week.

The largest increase was among individuals purchasing private health insurance plans. From Nov. 26 to Dec. 5, nearly 4,000 Kentuckians chose a new private insurance policy – a 32 percent increase over the prior total of private plans.

kynect’s technology team had anticipated a post-holiday increase in web traffic, applications and enrollments and increased capacity in order to meet the demand.

 

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. The site continues to enroll about 1,000 Kentuckians each day into new health coverage.
