UPDATE: Medicaid Benefits Restored

Kentucky HEALTH and Medicaid benefits have been a bit of a headache lately. But, we’re getting more good news! Dental and Vision coverage is to be reinstated by August 1, 2018.

 

Since the beginning of July, when a Federal Judge blocked Gov. Bevin’s work requirements for Medicaid, nearly 400,000 people in Kentucky have been without vision and dental coverage. After a ton of backlash and no viable solution in site, these benefits will be restored.

 

If you have been to the dentist or eye doctor since losing coverage, you must contact your Managed Care Organization (MCO) for reimbursement, otherwise you will be billed.

 

We don’t have a ton of information at this point, but we will keep updating the blog as more information becomes available.

Protect yourself against COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Protect yourself against COVID-19 (coronavirus) by covering your nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you develop a fever and symptoms of respiratory illness, such as a cough or difficulty breathing, call your primary care provider.

To protect Patients and Staff we are asking:

  • All patients call before walking into the health center
  • Patients 60 years and older accept a telephone visit rather than walking into the health center for an appointment
  • Do NOT bring anyone with you to your appointment unless medically necessary

 

Do NOT come to the health center within your 14 day isolation/quarantine period
