Kentucky’s health insurance marketplace—called kynect—has enrolled more people per capita than any other state exchange, according to Stateline, the daily news service of the Pew Charitable Trusts.

Tested for months before its launch, the kynect website registered 29,000 people in October, the first month of open enrollment. More than 123,000 state residents signed up for coverage by Jan. 2.

AARP encourages the more than 105,000 Kentuckians ages 50 to 64 who still lack health insurance to sign up before open enrollment closes March 31. Every plan offered through kynect covers doctor visits, emergency care, hospital care, prescription drugs and preventive care.

Go to kynect.ky.gov or call toll-free at 855-459-6328 to compare plans and enroll.
