FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky's Healthcare Exchange enrolled more than 1,000 Kentuckians each day into new health coverage during its first month of operation.

Governor Steve Beshear said KYNECT is a model for the nation. The exchange enrolled 32,000 people since its October 1 launch. 41% of those who enrolled are under 35-years-old. 23% were under 25.

Beshear said KYNECT's smooth operation and easy to use interface are helping give Kentuckians healthcare they desperately need.

The highest enrollment totals so far have been in Jefferson and Fayette Counties.
