Anthem Kentucky Medicaid Testimonial

Many of Anthems Medicaid members in Kentucky have not previously had access to dental services or may have not been aware that they can access oral health benefits at no cost, said Cecelia Manlove, president of Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Kentucky Medicaid. This can result in gaps in care, deteriorating oral health and the risk of future health complications, so we want our members to take control of their health by accessing the benefits offered through DentaQuest. Also, if our members need help finding a provider or understanding what services are available, we are committed to connecting them with qualified experts who can help them maintain and improve their oral health.

Children should start seeing a dentist when they get their first tooth, before their first birthday, and both children and adults should see a dentist every six months, said Rebekah Mathews, DentaQuest regional director of client engagement in Kentucky. Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children in Kentucky, and children with dental problems typically grow up to become adults with dental problems. As we grow older, dental issues can lead to more severe health issues, so it is important to start practicing preventive health as soon as possible and working toward a healthier future.

Wku And Anthem Blue Cross And Blue Shield Medicaid In Kentucky Launch Scholarship Program For Future Health Care Professionals

  • WKU Philanthropy
  • Tuesday, October 11th, 2022

BOWLING GREEN, KY. Western Kentucky University and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Medicaid in Kentucky today announced an endowed scholarship to expand the number of frontline workers in the western region of the state, increase access to care and improve health equity in Kentuckys rural areas. The Anthem Medicaid Rural Medicine Scholarship will support up to four students at WKU through a $100,000 gift from Anthem Medicaid that will serve students for years to come.

According to a 2022 Kentucky Hospital Association report, 22% of all nursing jobs in the state are unfilled, and another 14% of nurses are near retirement. In 2021 alone, Kentucky hospitals reported more than 13,000 vacancies. Shortages such as this, coupled with the states high prevalence of multiple chronic conditions, reinforce the need to expand the number of health care professionals in the Commonwealth.

What an exciting day for health care in western Kentucky, said WKU President Timothy C. Caboni. We are thrilled to partner with Anthem Medicaid to create this much-needed opportunity for our students. This gift helps us achieve our mission of preparing health services professionals with an inclusive, community-engaged and interdisciplinary academic experience.

Dr. Tania Basta, Dean of the College of Health and Human Services, said the College and the University are grateful for this generous gift from Anthem Medicaid.
