Bevin Transition Office responds to Gov. Beshear

Gov. Beshear's Health Care Press Conference

From Jessica Ditto, Communications Director
News from Governor-Elect Bevin's Office

FRANKFORT, KY - The following is a statement from Jessica Ditto, Communications Director for Governor-Elect Bevin's Transition Team, in response to Governor Beshear's health care press conference:

"Governor-Elect Bevin's immediate priority is forming the new administration and preparing the executive budget.

"Governor-Elect Bevin has laid out a health care vision for Kentucky that will encourage personal responsibility and focus on expanding access to quality, affordable health care coverage. His administration will move forward in addressing Kentucky's health care needs in a deliberate and thoughtful fashion, consulting with Kentucky's health care stakeholders, his Cabinet appointees and the General Assembly.

"Governor Beshear has three more weeks in office and is responsible for this open enrollment period. His most serious challenge is to re-enroll the 51,000 Kentuckians who are losing coverage due to the collapse of the Kentucky Health Cooperative. Those Kentuckians know first-hand the failures of Obamacare. The urgent task of re-enrolling Kentuckians who lost coverage remains firmly in Governor Beshear's court.

The time for politics is over. Governor Bevin promised Kentuckians a fresh start and he is working every day to deliver on that promise."
