Medicaid covered almost 636,000 adult Kentuckians ages 19 to 64 in the second quarter of this year, according to a new report released by the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky.
The findings are in the latest report from an ongoing study of the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in Kentucky, commissioned by the Foundation in 2015. Of the 635,747 adult Kentuckians covered by traditional and expanded Medicaid as of June 30, 2016, 493,199 comprised the expansion population and 142,548 were covered by traditional Medicaid, the report said.

Funded by an endowment, the mission of the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky is to address the unmet health care needs of Kentuckians by informing and influencing health policy, improving access to care, reducing health risks and disparities, and promoting health equity.
