During the COVID-19 state of emergency, individuals younger than 65 without medical insurance should complete the Healthcare Coverage Application to request temporary coverage under Kentucky Medicaid presumptive eligibility. By completing this application you attest that you do not have medical insurance that covers doctors, pharmacy or hospital visits. To maintain Medicaid benefits beyond the presumptive eligibility coverage period, complete a full Medicaid application online at Kynect, call (855) 306-8959 or contact a local kynector for application assistance.
