Definitions: Number and percent of Kentucky children enrolled in Medicaid or the Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program (KCHIP) who received any dental care.

Footnotes: Data refer to the total number of children (up to age of 20) receiving dental services that were enrolled in Medicaid or KCHIP, including the Passport region. A child may be counted in more than one county if they moved to a different county during the year. Prior to 2014, the statewide total is derived from the county sum. Beginning in 2014, the statewide total reflects unique members.
