The Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services (DMS) has produced a series of documents about the copays many people on Medicaid have already been paying. Starting January 1, 2019, everyone who is not otherwise exempt will start paying copays for some services.
Preventive services do NOT have copays. Preventive services include screenings, check-ups, and patient counseling to prevent illnesses, disease, or other health problems. This copay policy will begin on January 1, 2019, even if the Kentucky HEALTH program has not started.
The following documents have been produced by DMS:
- An FAQ document for members/beneficiaries
- An FAQ document for providers
- A Quick Reference Guide for providers
