KIPDA’s kynector program provides individuals seeking health insurance with assistance enrolling in healthcare plans through the Kentucky Health Benefits Exchange or the State Based Health Insurance Marketplace.
Eligibility for Medicaid is calculated by using Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI). Our kynectors will help you determine if you are eligible for Medicaid in Kentucky or you may go to kynect.ky.gov and prescreen for eligibility. If you are not eligible for Medicaid, our kynectors will help you access health coverage through the State Based Marketplace, which is also available through the kynect portal.
KIPDA’s kynect Program provides Community Outreach and Education about the KHBE and kynect health coverage. Our qualified kynectors will help anyone requesting assistance with an application for health insurance, including:
Any Kentuckian who is uninsured
Qualified Immigrant Populations
Justice Involved Persons upon Reentry to the Community
Contact KIPDA at 502-266-5571 and ask to speak with someone in the kynector Program or visit KIPDA.org to view a list of locations where assisters are available under the Calendar of Events tab. You can also go to kynect.ky.gov and use the Self-Service Portal to begin an application.
