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.

If you want to switch to Humana Healthy Horizons, call Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services (KDMS) at 855‑446‑1245, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Eastern time, to speak with a Medicaid services representative.

Any changes you make to your health plan enrollment will be effective January 1 of that next calendar year. For example, changes you make in November 2022 will be effective January 1, 2023. You still will get benefits from your current health plan until this date. Once the plan year starts on January 1, 2023, 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.

You can find more information about enrollment on the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) enrollment webpage.


Disenrollment is when you need to change your health plan outside of open enrollment or the first 90 days of enrollment. You need to have a reason approved by the state if you want to disenroll. For a list of approved reasons to disenroll, see your Enrollee Handbook.

Call an enrollment kynector

Now that you know more about how to enroll in Humana Healthy Horizons, your next step is to talk to Kentucky’s designated enrollment kynector. A kynector can help you enroll or disenroll from a plan and answer your questions.

Not sure if you can change plans? Some Medicaid enrollees can change their plans at any time, for any reason. To find out if you may change plans, call Kentucky’s enrollment kynector at 855‑306‑8959 (TTY: 711).

When you know there’s a light in the distance but you can’t quite reach it, extra care may be a big help. Humana Healthy Horizons can help you focus on the big picture and all your healthy days ahead.
