Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the following statement on the announcement that Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear has issued an executive order creating the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange:

“I commend Gov. Steve Beshear and thank him for his leadership in establishing the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange, which will provide tens of thousands of Kentuckians with access to affordable, high-quality health insurance options. A critical component of the Affordable Care Act, the state-based exchanges – which will be available in 2014 – offer individuals and small businesses more choice and control in their health coverage while also helping bring down the cost of care for all consumers.”
