Two articles, two sides on Kynect, Medicaid expansion

Here are links to articles on a major issue to all Kentuckians from the office of outgoing Governor Steve Beshear and a response from Governor-elect Matt Bevin's Transition Team:

  1. Governor Beshear's statement that Kentucky can afford Kynect and Medicaid Expansion, with analysis concluding that state will have a net positive financial position of $300.2 million by Fiscal Year 17-18 if plan continued. See: Gov. Beshear: Kentucky Can Afford Kynect, Medicaid Expansion

  2. A briefer response from Gov.-elect Bevin's Transition Team saying, ""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 . . . The time for politics is over. Governor Bevin promised Kentuckians a fresh start and he is working every day to deliver on that promise." See: Bevin Transition Office responds to Gov. Beshear
The articles are posted as sent. - CM
