Since Thanksgiving week, enrollments through Kentucky’s health insurance website, kynect, are up nearly 93 percent – and more than 1 out of every 4 signups is for private health insurance.  As Kentucky’s health benefit website administrators predicted, thousands of Kentuckians made final decisions on their family’s health care plans by Dec. 23, the deadline to ensure their coverage would be effective New Year’s Day.

 

Purchases of private health plans soared again, with 5,630 new enrollments since last week.  Since Thanksgiving week, enrollments in private health insurance have swelled by 169 percent.  Open enrollment continues through March 31 for any Kentuckian seeking health insurance.  Those who apply over the next couple weeks can have coverage activated as soon as Feb. 1.
