HEALTH OVERHAUL-NONPROFITS-KENTUCKY
Bucking national trend, most Kentuckians choose nonprofit for health insurance

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 4:36 PM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


A nonprofit health cooperative has sold 77 percent of the private health insurance plans purchased through Kentucky's health insurance marketplace.

Nonprofit health cooperatives have struggled to be competitive with their bigger, for-profit counterparts. But not in Kentucky, where 77 percent of the more than 77,000 health insurance plans were sold by the Kentucky Health Cooperative.

CEO Janie Miller said her company has benefited from a state website that has been immune to the technical glitches that have plagued the federal website.

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, the only other company to offer health insurance plans statewide, has sold 12 percent of the plans. Humana, which did not offer plans statewide, has sold 11 percent of the plans.
