Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson spoke this afternoon at the Daviess County Health Department. He says more than 15 percent of county residents are uninsured.
More than 120,000 Kentuckians have started enrolling through the state's health care program.
"You got all these people working at restaurants, working without health care," said Abramson. "They're making less than $15,000 a year as an individual. They get expanded Medicaid for free. People that are working at hotels, making beds, cleaning things up, they get an opportunity to get health care for themselves."
Abramson says there's an opportunity to get 95 percent of all residents insured by next March.
