Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D) last week said the state will expand Medicaid benefits to include dental, vision and hearing care, according to an Oct. 20 report in the The Louisville Courier-Journal. All enrolled adults (about 900,000 lives, per state officials) will be eligible for this new coverage. Kentucky currently covers 1,818,610 Medicaid beneficiaries (including CHIP members), with 91.3% enrolled in managed care plans.
