A major deadline looms at the end of the month for Kentuckians still seeking health insurance.
March 31 is the last day until November to sign up for insurance on Kynect, the state’s online health exchange.
"They would not be able to enroll in coverage again until the next open enrollment period which, right now, we understand to be starting November 15 for effective dates of coverage of January 1, 2015," explains Janie Miller, CEO of Kentucky Health Cooperative. "So basically for the remainder of this year they would not be able to get coverage for themselves or their family."
There will be exceptions for qualifying events such as marriage or job changes.
According to the state, 279,601 people had obtained health coverage on the exchange, including 222,719 individuals who enrolled in Medicaid and 56,882 individuals who picked up private insurance as of last Friday.
