More than 2,000 Kentuckians will have to pay more to receive Medicaid benefits that help them avoid nursing homes. The news comes after state officials said they’ve been charging the incorrect amount for over half a decade.
A new report shows thousands of people across the Commonwealth lost their dental and vision coverage as well as transportation assistance in the recent Medicaid expansion rollbacks issued by Governor Matt Bevin’s administration.
Starting on Sunday, Kentuckians with Medicaid who gained coverage because of the expansion will lose access to dental and vision benefits following a Friday court ruling striking down Gov. Matt Bevin’s changes to the program.
