Office of the Health Benefit Exchange
Gov. Steve Beshear issued an executive order June 20, 2014 creating the Kentucky Office of Health Benefit and Health Information Exchange (KOHBHIE) in the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.
The office has an executive director and five divisions: Health Care Policy Administration, Education and Outreach, Financial and Operations Administration, Kentucky Access and Kentucky Electronic Health Information.
The KOHBHIE oversees kynect, Kentucky's online health benefit exchange, where individuals and small-business employees in Kentucky can shop for health insurance, compare plan costs, benefits and quality and apply for premium subsidies and tax credits. Through kynect, participants also can determine their eligibility and apply for Medicaid and the Kentucky Children's Health Insurance Program.
