Deadline approaches for kynect insurance

Hazard, Ky. (WYMT)-- The deadline for people to connect themselves with health insurance through Kentucky's exchange is approaching.

For coverage through kynect to take effect on January 1, people will need to be enrolled by December 23.

Debbie Goodson, one of three certified agents at Premier Insurance Group, suggest that people who have not already enrolled hold off for now.

"If someone were inquiring today, wait until after next week, and the following week, start the process for a February 1 issue," Goodson said.

She also emphasized that enrolling is something that often cannot be done in one sitting.

"It is not a one time stop," she said. "We have actually had people that would have to return and do something different three times," she said.

One of the biggest stumbling blocks has to do with income. People need to ensure they note income sources such as interest, in order to get the most accurate insurance quotes.
