Here are some things you should know about Medicaid enrollment in Kentucky:

Mandatory enrollment

Mandatory enrollment means you qualify for Kentucky Medicaid and are required to enroll in a plan. You can choose the plan you want, or the state automatically will enroll you into a plan.

When you first enroll in a Medicaid Managed Care Plan, you have 90 days to try the plan. During this 90-day period, you can switch for any reason to a new plan. After this 90-day period ends, you cannot change health plans until the next open enrollment period, unless you have an event that allows a change.

Open Enrollment Period

The yearly Open Enrollment Period gives mandatory enrollees another chance to change plans for any reason. For the 2021 plan year, the Open Enrollment Period is between November 2, 2020 and December 15, 2020.

If you have Humana Kentucky Medicaid and want to stay with us, you do not have to do anything. You will get a new ID card before the end of the year. This ID card will include the new name Humana Healthy Horizons, and you will be a Humana Healthy Horizons enrollee as of January 1, 2021. Please continue using your current ID card until you get your new card.

If you want to switch to Humana Healthy Horizons, call Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services (KDMS) at 1-855-446-1245, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., to speak with a Medicaid Services Representative.

Any changes you make to your health plan enrollment will be effective on January 1, 2021. You still will get benefits from your current health plan until this date. Once the plan year starts on January 1, 2021, you have 90 days to make a change. After this 90-day period ends, you cannot change health plans until the next open enrollment period, unless you have an event that allows a change.
