No-deductible health insurance for Kentuckians who live in outlying counties

This plan offers high-quality care for those who live outside Central Kentucky. Members who live in outlying counties can choose physicians from the Anthem network and benefit from the same coverage as the HMO plan.

That means no deductibles and no co-payments for preventative care. Members of the RHP plan incur slightly higher monthly premiums (ie. $4 more per month for employee only).

Please note

Plan members may visit any Anthem provider in the 110-county RHP network or UK HealthCare for primary care and specialist office visits and procedures performed in the office.

Surgeries and other certain specialty procedures must be performed in the plan member's designated facility network.
