    An additional 775 Trimble County residents were enrolled in Medicaid last year because of Kentucky’s decision to expand the health-insurance program, according to a state government report.
    Over a 20-month period ending in October, these new Trimble County Medicaid recipients were responsible for bringing $897,000 in health-care spending to the county, according to the study, conducted by the Health and Family Services Cabinet.
    The document was released during the final months of the Beshear administration.

  • Tobacco quality loss crop insurance explained

    The Burley Tobacco Growers Cooperative Association established the Tobacco Administrative Grading Service beginning in the 2012 crop year. An agreement was made between the BTCGA and the Agriculture Marketing Service to coordinate with producers to schedule times and locations for tobacco to be graded for quality loss. The Risk-Management Agency adopted special provisions of insurance to require all tobacco seeking a quality claim be graded by AMS. Growers make an appointment to have their tobacco graded for quality by calling the TAGS scheduling program toll-free at 855-776-8570.
