FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The comeback of Kentucky’s state-run health insurance exchange will be completed Nov. 1. That’s when consumers can start using it to apply for health coverage.

Retaining its original kynect name, the web portal will enable Kentuckians to apply for coverage and complete their enrollment.

Gov. Andy Beshear says that starting Oct. 15, consumers can log in to the portal to compare state-managed health insurance plans ahead of enrollment.

Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear said the state-based exchange allows Kentucky to “tailor our plans to lift up the health of our people, save the state and the people money and create a one-stop shop.”
