The state says more than 10,000 Kentuckians have filed applications for health care coverage since Tuesday's launch of the kynect program.

It's the start of a six-month, open enrollment period for Kentuckians to compare and enroll in health insurance plans.

Kynect is designed to help uninsured residents get coverage through private insurance plans, Medicaid and the Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program.

The state says more than 160 small businesses have started applications for health insurance for employees.

Kentuckians who sign up before December 15th will start coverage on January 1, 2014.

Open enrollment is available through March 31, 2014.
