​​​​​​​​Health Plans

for current members and retirees

​A number of health insurance options are available to our members at extremely competitive rates.  All have medical and prescription drug benefits, and unlimited lifetime maximums.  Each plan offers four coverage levels: Single, Parent Plus [employee plus child(ren)], Couple [employee plus spouse], and Family [employee, spouse & children].  There are no referrals required with any of the plans, and each provides an extensive network of providers from which to choose.

Each plan offers the opportunity to participate in Why Weight Kentucky, a weight management program that provides the support of a dedicated nurse and covered prescription weight loss medications.  You are also eligible to participate in tobacco cessation programs and to receive over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapies.  For more information, visit LivingWell.

Commonwealth Standard PPO

Flexible Spending Account​

The Kentucky Employees' Health Plan offers two flexible spending accounts (FSAs) – both can save you money!

An FSA is a tax-free account that allow you to pay for certain healthcare or dependent care expenses with pre-tax money that you set aside through payroll deduction. This results in you paying less income and Social Security taxes!  Read more

​Waiving Coverage

If you do not need health insurance with KEHP, you can choose to waive insurance coverage and elect an employer-funded health reimbursement account (HRA). Your employer will contribute $175 per month, up to $2,100 per year, into an expense account which you can use to pay for qualified medical expenses. Funds do roll over from year to year as long as coverage is waived. There are two HRAs available, a waiver HRA and a waiver dental/vision only HRA. View Complete Details. HumanaVitality is not available to those who waive coverage.
