KENTUCKY (WFIE) - Governor Andy Beshear says consumers can start logging in to Kentucky’s state-run health insurance exchange to review plans that best suit their needs for 2022.

Starting Friday, Kentuckians can compare state-managed health insurance plans on the web portal, known as Kynect, ahead of the enrollment period that begins Nov. 1.

“Kynect is a website, Eric Friedlander, the Kentucky Secretary Cabinet of Health and Family Services, said. “And it’s one way you can go, and you can sign up for several different types of benefits.”

The governor relaunched the portal last year. It will allow Kentuckians to apply for health insurance coverage and complete their enrollment on one platform.

“It’s Kentuckians and dealing with Kentuckians,” said Friedlander. “Local folks helping local folks get healthcare coverage.”

Friedlander says this will benefit all people in Kentucky.

“We have much more control over what we can offer,” said Friedlander. “And we do that at a savings to folks across the Commonwealth. So, I see it as a win-win.”
