The Bevin Administration filed a lawsuit on Monday, February 19, 2018 seeking a ruling that the Commonwealth’s Medicaid waiver, known as Kentucky HEALTH, fully complies with federal law. Through the lawsuit, the Bevin Adminsitration seeks to ensure that the Commonwealth’s voice is heard and that the reasons for creating Kentucky HEALTH are fully considered. Steve Pitt, General Counsel to Governor Matt Bevin, said the waiver has the potential to positively affect the lives of many Kentuckians. The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved the waiver on January 12, 2018. The new program promotes personal responsibility for health and well-being, as well as strengthens Medicaid’s long-term fiscal sustainability.
