This bill was a good step forward, but was sidelined by the novel coronavirus pandemic. We remain committed to this legislation and plan to advance it during the next legislative session.

The perspectives of formally incarcerated Kentuckians are valuable and needed in the important work of Kentucky's Medicaid Task Force. This bill would add one formerly incarcerated person to the Advisory Council for Medical Assistance. It would also create a Technical Advisory Committee on Persons Returning to Society from Incarceration to act in an advisory capacity to the Advisory Council for Medical Assistance.
