The Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange is compiling a list of brokers who want to sell exchange plans.

Kentucky agents can go here to tell the exchange they want access to the Kentucky exchange kynect enrollment system.

The exchange will then invite the agent to participate in an online, self-study training program, officials said.

Except for participating carrier reps, agents who participate must have appointments with at least two exchange plan issuers.
