Kentucky HEALTH is Gov. Bevin’s proposal to reform Kentucky’s Medicaid program
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 11, 2016) — The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky has scheduled a webinar from 3-4 p.m. on July 18 to provide information on Kentucky HEALTH, Gov. Matt Bevin’s proposal to reform Kentucky’s Medicaid program through a special waiver application to the federal government. The webinar is free and open to the public.
The foundation has contracted with Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, to conduct the training during the public comment period on the Kentucky HEALTH proposal. Comments are due to the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services by 5 p.m. July 22.
This webinar is one in a series of “Health for a Change” trainings offered by the Foundation to inform health policy and expand the capacity of nonprofits to work on current health policy issues. The presentation will be posted on the Foundation’s website. A previous Health for a Change webinar provided background on Medicaid waivers under Section 1115 of the Social Security Act, which is the tool Bevin’s administration is using to create the Kentucky HEALTH demonstration project.
