Statement on the Opening of Kentucky's Health Insurance Exchange

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the following statement marking the opening of kynect, Kentucky’s new health insurance exchange:

“This is a historic day for our Commonwealth. Through kynect, more than 640,000 uninsured Kentuckians now have access to affordable health care – many for the first time. Pre-existing conditions will no longer prevent anyone from getting coverage, and insurance companies can no longer set annual or lifetime limits in coverage, meaning battling a major disease won’t lead to bankruptcy.

“If you are uninsured or looking for new coverage options, I encourage you to check out kynect during the open enrollment period, which runs from today through March 31, 2014. And please share this information with any friends or family members who might benefit from these new health coverage options.”
