Outreach and Enrollment
Without health insurance, many are unable to access the health care they need. The Kentucky Primary Care Association (KPCA) is proud of our long partnership with the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange (KHBE) to help Kentuckians gain access to insurance coverage through the kynect Health Benefit Exchange. By connecting with a kynector, formerly called an Application Assister, Kentucky residents can get free application and enrollment assistance and/or education on options and issues affecting applications for both Medicaid, K-CHIP, or Qualified Health Plans through HealthCare.gov.
Our kynectors will become your best advocate, helping you to identify and to address informational and social need hurdles that might otherwise not be overcome without experienced help. KPCA kynectors link individuals up with resources and go the extra mile to explain complex health coverage information, and are available to help you year-round at no cost.
If you need enrollment assistance, have an upcoming community event where attendees may benefit from free insurance education, are interested in inviting a kynector to speak with your business or at an upcoming community meeting, or if you would like a local kynector to provide an enrollment event during annual Open Enrollment (November 1 – December 15 yearly), please review our KPCA kynector by county list to find someone local to help you in-person or over the phone. We have both regional kynectors available at member clinics in South Eastern Kentucky and Connecting Kids to Coverage kynectors (specializing in helping children and parents) available across Kentucky.
If you have any questions or need additional help connecting with someone in your area, please contact Carol Adkins, KPCA Community Engagement and Outreach Coordinator at 502-545-8812 or visit www.KHBE.ky.gov to find a kynector near you.
