Kentucky has adapted this definition of a CHW from the American Public Health Association (2018)
Kentucky Medicaid is a state and federal program authorized by Title XIX of the Social Security Act to provide health care for eligible low-income residents including children, families, pregnant women, the aged and the disabled. Eligibility is determined by several factors, including family size, income and the federal poverty level.
The Kentucky Children's Health Insurance Program (KCHIP) provides free or low cost health insurance for Kentucky's children. Eligibility is determined by several factors, including family size, income and the federal poverty level. Also:
A federal health insurance program for people: Age 65 or older. Under 65 with certain disabilities. Any age with end-stage renal disease.
A Qualified Health Plan (QHP) is an insurance plan that’s certified by the Kentucky Exchange, provides essential health benefits, follows established limits on cost-sharing (like deductibles, copayments, and out-of-pocket maximum amounts), and meets other requirements under the Affordable Care Act. All qualified health plans meet the Affordable Care Act requirement for having health coverage, known as “minimum essential coverage.”
