The Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky says it will work with the governor's office to help Kentuckians maintain their health coverage. Starting in July, Kentucky will begin requiring some Medicaid recipients to work or do community service in order to keep their coverage.

Foundation President Ben Chandler said his organization will provide work and volunteer opportunities to help people meet the new requirements. He also said they would help some people pay their monthly premiums.

Bevin said the partnership is vital to the success of the program.
