Description: The My Rewards Account (MRA) provides incentives for beneficiaries to improve their health while actively participating in the community. A MRA is an account for most adults eligible for Kentucky HEALTH. The MRA works like a Health Spending Account. Beneficiaries earn dollars into their MRA by completing qualifying activities. Half of any unused Deductible Account funds go into a beneficiary's My Rewards Account at the end of the year.
Timing: People who are on Medicaid now and are eligible for Kentucky HEALTH may earn My Rewards dollars before Kentucky HEALTH begins.
- January 1, 2018: Beneficiaries may automatically earn dollars by getting preventive health services. This includes things like getting a physical check-up, comprehensive preventive dental exam, or comprehensive vision exam. Beneficiaries may also earn dollars for taking their dependent child in for any of these services.
- April 1, 2018: Beneficiaries may begin to earn dollars by completing online My Rewards education and training activities (details coming soon).
- July 1, 2018: Kentucky HEALTH benefits begin. Beneficiaries earn dollars for all qualifying activities, and may use the dollars in their My Rewards Account to pay for preventive dental and vision services and some gym and fitness activities.
All beneficiaries may use the My Rewards Account for enhanced benefits, such as fitness services or activities. Medicaid Expansion adults may use My Rewards Account for preventive vision and dental services (medical vision and dental needs are still covered by MCO).
