Temporary Medicaid is available to many Kentuckians during the COVID-19 pandemic.   If you have lost your job or health insurance recently, or have been denied Medicaid coverage in the past, talk to one of our kynectors!

Until August 15, 2021 there is a Special Enrollment when you can purchase insurance through HealthCare.gov.  You may be able to buy more affordable health insurance coverage due to the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. More people qualify for tax credits and tax credits have increased for many.   Our kynectors can help!

Family Health Centers has staff on-site to help you apply for free or low cost health insurance through kynect, Kentucky’s Benefits System, purchase insurance through healthcare.gov or to answer your questions about obtaining or keeping your health insurance. This is a free service, available to anyone in the community.
