SKY members receive their coverage and extra benefits through Aetna Better Health of Kentucky. Our care management team includes nurses and social workers. We'll work with health care providers, agencies and others to get your child the services they need. We can help make appointments and discuss your child’s care with their doctor. We can also help families find their way and make it easier to get the resources they need.
The SKY program serves children:
In foster care, adopted from foster care or formerly in foster care
Placed with fictive kin (person not related by blood but who has a meaningful and positive relationship with a child)
Dually committed to the Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) and the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ)
