Office of the Health Benefit Exchange
The Kentucky Office of Health Benefit and Information Exchange has an executive director and five divisions: Health Care Policy Administration; Education, Outreach and Transition; Financial and Operations Administration; Kentucky Access and Quality Assurance; and Kentucky Electronic Health Information.
KOHBIE oversees Kentucky’s online health benefit exchange where individuals can learn how to enroll in health coverage, pre-screen to find out what financial aid they may be eligible for and find help in their community to fill out the application or pick a plan. The exchange also helps small businesses find health coverage for their employees.
The Kentucky Electronic Health Information division enables safe, secure electronic exchange of patient health information among participating providers and organizations throughout the state. It is based on the need to convert paper medical records to electronic data that can be shared more readily.
