Based on a recent legal decision, changes to Medicaid under Kentucky HEALTH will not begin on July 1, 2018 as planned.

What does this mean for me?

At this time, your medical benefits will continue as they are today with no change. However, if you received a notice saying you could access vision and dental services through a My Rewards Account, you will not have access to dental and vision benefits.  The legal decision has stopped the ability to use the My Rewards dollars in order to purchase dental and vision services.

What do I need to do?

You are not required to do anything at this time. You and your eligible family members can continue to access medically necessary and preventive healthcare services. If you have already paid your premium, you will get further information from Passport Health Plan.

What about Community Engagement?

If you received a notice dated July 1, 2018 saying you may have a community engagement requirement, you do not need to do anything right now.  There currently is no community engagement requirement.  Kentucky HEALTH was temporarily stopped, and did not start on July 1.  While the program has been temporarily stopped, you should not ignore the notice. In the event the requirement goes into effect, we want you to be prepared for the Kentucky HEALTH program and to know what you need to do to get your Medicaid benefits through Kentucky HEALTH.

You can still participate!

The Kentucky HEALTH program offers support and resources for those interested in improving their incomes and health.  This ruling does not threaten the opportunities Kentucky HEALTH has already created. We look forward to offering these new resources to Kentuckians on a voluntary basis.

You can log on to to take free online courses about health skills, life skills, and work skills. You can also visit to find a career center near you, where a coach can help you find training, education, and job opportunities in your area.
