Keep Kentucky Covered! is the battle cry from Kentucky Voices for Health and a broad coalition of groups in the state which are pushing back hard on Gov. Bevin’s plans to use a 1115 waiver request to dramatically restructure – and limit – Kentucky’s very successful Medicaid expansion program. Their analysis just released concludes that despite modest improvements, the Governor’s plan remains costly, complex and will greatly reduce access to care. The proposal is based on covering 86,000 fewer Kentuckians and placing greater burdens on providers and nonprofits.
