NHeLP Comments on Kentucky’s Sec. 1115 Waiver Proposal

Executive Summary

In comments to the U.S. Department of of Health and Human Services, NHeLP urges the HHS Secretary to reject Kentucky’s proposed “HEALTH Program (KHP),” waiver. Kentucky’s proposed waiver, which includes premiums, waiting periods and lockouts, and work service requirements, would apply to current beneficiaries, likely harming their coverage. The proposed exemptions to Medicaid would also limit attempts to enroll in the Medicaid program. “Kentucky itself projects that it its proposed amendments are approved, over 55,000 adults will lose coverage,” NHeLP’s comments state.
