Kentucky is set to begin signing up uninsured residents for health coverage through an online marketplace that offers policies with monthly premiums as low as $47.
The exchange's open enrollment period runs through the end of the year. Policies go into effect Jan. 1.
Premiums range from less than $50 a month for a healthy single person to more than $700 a month for a family of four.
Gov. Steve Beshear has pressed to implement the federal health care reforms for his state. He points out that Kentucky ranks among the worst in the nation in nearly every measure of health.
