KIPDA’s In Person Assister program provides individuals seeking health insurance with assistance enrolling in healthcare plans through the Kentucky Health Benefits Exchange or the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace.
Federal law requires that most individuals have health insurance or pay a penalty. Medicaid and Medicare coverage meet the requirement. Eligibility for Medicaid is calculated by using Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI). Our In-Person Assisters will help you determine if you are eligible for Medicaid in Kentucky or you may go to benefind.ky.gov and prescreen for eligibility. If you are not eligible for Medicaid, our Assisters will help you access health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace at healthcare.gov.
KIPDA’s In Person Assister Program provides Community Outreach and Education about the KHBE. Our qualified assisters will help anyone requesting assistance with an application for health insurance, including:
- Kentuckians who are uninsured
- Qualified Immigrant Populations
- Justice Involved Persons upon Reentry to the Community
