Kynect Enrollment Deadline Nearing

The deadline for Kentuckians to enroll in a health insurance plan through the state’s health exchange is just hours away.

Kentuckians will have until midnight tonight (Monday) to sign up for a new health care policy through KYnect (Connect), the state’s health insurance exchange, in order for the policy to take effect Jan. 1, 2014.

Those without insurance by the end of March 2014 will be assessed a tax penalty.

So far, about 100,000 of an estimated 640,000 Kentuckians without health insurance have signed up for a policy through the state exchange.
