Connecting Kids to Coverage: Kentucky
Reaching children and families who are eligible for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) can be particularly challenging in rural areas of the country. But in Whitesburg, Kentucky, Mountain Comprehensive Health Corporation (MCHC) is working within rural communities to help families enroll in and access health care. MCHC is one of the largest rural health centers in the country. They serve more than 30,000 patients each year across multiple locations and are a member of the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). NACHC supports community-based health centers, like MCHC, and is helping to increase access to health care for the medically underserved and uninsured.
