FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -

About 280,000 Kentuckians will have to give up their current insurance policies in the months ahead and enroll in alternatives that comply with the federal Affordable Care Act.

Kentucky Department of Insurance spokeswoman Ronda Sloan said individual policies for about 130,000 people will be discontinued, as will small group policies for about 150,000 more.

Sloan said people affected will receive discontinuation letters when their policies come up for renewal. She said they will be transitioned into new polices that comply with the health care law.

Tea party activist David Adams is one of Kentucky's most ardent critics of the Affordable Care Act. He says forcing people to give up insurance policies of their choosing is unacceptable.
