Statement on Medicaid Expansion in Kentucky

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) released the following statement regarding Gov. Steve Beshear’s decision to expand the Medicaid program in Kentucky under the Affordable Care Act.

“There are thousands of Kentuckians whose lives have already been improved – and some saved – because of the Affordable Care Act. And now, with the expansion of Medicaid, 308,000 uninsured Kentuckians will soon have access to affordable, quality health care and the economic stability that comes with it. I commend Gov. Beshear for his leadership and join him today in celebrating this historic decision.”

The remaining 332,000 uninsured Kentuckians will have access to affordable insurance in the Health Benefit Exchange, a new competitive insurance marketplace, beginning in 2014.
