Four in 10 Kentucky adults support the Affordable Care Act.
In March 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) became law. Since then, the Kentucky Health Issues Poll (KHIP) has asked Kentucky adults their opinions about the healthcare reform law.
As part of the ACA in Kentucky, kynect allows Kentuckians, including those eligible for the expanded Medicaid program and Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program (KCHIP), to search for and enroll in insurance plans. Last year, 521,000 people enrolled through kynect, 75% of whom were previously uninsured.
