Kentuckians on Medicaid Can Switch Health Plans During Special Open Enrollment Period Through May 31

KY Health NoticeKentucky adults who are on Medicaid and enrolled with different health plans within the same household are currently able to consolidate into a single managed care organization (MCO) during a special Open Enrollment Period.

Starting on July 1, 2018, if there are multiple adults on Kentucky HEALTH in one household who are enrolled with different MCO – such as Passport – they will need to pay a premium to each MCO (if premiums are required of the individuals). Beneficiaries in this situation may choose to consolidate to one MCO for the household during a Special Enrollment Period that is currently running through May 31.

To change MCOs, Kentuckians are asked to go online to www.benefind.ky.gov, or to call the Kentucky Department for Community-Based Services (DCBS) at 1-855-446-1245 or 1-800-635-2570. To find more help, Kentuckians should click here or go online to www.khbe.ky.gov for more information.

More information is available online at the state’s official Kentucky HEALTH website, www.kentuckyhealth.ky.gov.
