This event was sponsored locally by the College of Health and Human Services, South Central Kentucky AHEC, and the Institute for Rural Health. Eighty-four people including health care providers, administrators, boards of directors, community agencies, coalitions, patient navigators, university faculty/staff, and students attended the informational session. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires each state to create a health exchange or participate in the federal exchange. Mr. Nold provided the audience with a brief overview of the Kynect benefit exchange, as well as the total enrollment for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
