During last month’s State of the Union address, President Barack Obama praised Kentucky as a model for implementation of the new healthcare law.

Prior to the Affordable Care Act, approximately 640,000 Kentuckians had no health insurance.

Since October 2013, more than 200,000 of the Commonwealth’s citizens have signed up through Kentucky’s health insurance exchange—Kynect.

About 75 percent of those have qualified for the expanded Medicaid program, with the remainder enrolling in new private plans.

For more information, please call (270) 926-4433.
Updated schedules for each county will be posted at www.GRADD.com.
