Over 32,000 enrolled in kynect's first month
FRANKFORT, Ky -- Kentucky's health exchange kynect, is reporting that over 32,000 people have enrolled in the state's exchange.
Approximately 1,000 Kentucky residents enrolled each day for the month of October. Many have cited the website's ease of access and smooth, continuous operation for users looking for affordable health coverage.
Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear praised the state's positive results despite the federal health care exchange's website experiencing numerous glitches.
"People who say the Affordable Care Act doesn't work need to look no further than Kentucky. Not only is it working here, Kentuckians are still stampeding to the website and call center to find affordable health coverage."
Slightly more women than men have signed up on the website. They also reported that 41 percent of all enrollees are under 35 years-old.
