Maintain Don't Gain Holiday Challenge

Take the 7-week C.R.E.W. Maintain Don't Gain Challenge! If you can maintain or lose weight during the Holidays, you will be entered for a cash drawing at the end of the 7 weeks. We focus on ways to reduce stress, healthy holiday recipes, and ways to stay moving during the busy holiday season. There is a $10 fee for this program. The money goes back to the winners at the end of the program. At the beginning of the program, participants weigh in to have a starting weight and the goal is to not add weight during the 7 weeks of the holiday season. There will be giveaways given to everyone who joins the program as well. At the end of the program, those who maintained or lost weight will be put in a drawing for one of the cash prizes. Those who lose 5% or more will be put in a special drawing for a cash prize. Call 502-955-5355 to sign up for a time. Weigh in week is November 13-17, 2023.

During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) the Kentucky Medicaid Department for Medicaid Services (DMS) made sure that all Medicaid beneficiaries kept their coverage. DMS paused all annual renewals. But soon DMS will resume annual renewals for Medicaid members. Members may be at risk of losing Medicaid coverage if we cannot reach them. Members should update their contact information as soon as possible and keep it updated so Kentucky Medicaid is able to reach them when it is their time to renew!

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Medicaid renewals and the PHE. Review these before calling the kynect helpline with any questions. If you do not see the answer, call the helpline at 855-4kynect (855-459-6328).  or visit 

Save Lives with Prevention Awareness

Colorectal cancer, or CRC, is the second deadliest cancer in the United States. Every March, National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month spotlights this disease and inspires more people to get checked starting at age 45. Two reasons why getting checked matters: 

  • Screening can find the warning signs of colon and rectal cancer, letting doctors take action to prevent the disease. 
  • Screening can also find colorectal cancer early, when treatment is most effective. 

One in 24 people will be diagnosed with CRC in their lifetime, but you can make a difference today. Learn about ways to build awareness, how to get support, and more below. Tomorrow can’t wait!
