Gov. Andy Beshear is urging Kentuckians who lack health insurance to take advantage of opportunities now available to sign up for coverage. The sign-up window for government insurance markets runs through May 15. President Joe Biden ordered the markets that ended their annual enrollment periods in December to reopen.

 

Beshear calls health care a basic human right. He says the coronavirus pandemic shows how expanded health care in Kentucky has helped the Bluegrass State suffer fewer virus-related deaths than most states.

 

Kentuckians needing help to enroll for health coverage can visit kynect.ky.gov. It's a one-stop portal for finding health coverage.
