  • Washington County residents among the lowest in health insurance ratings

    It’s a good thing Washington County was recently named as the seventh healthiest county in Kentucky, because statistics released about adults with health insurance in the state show that Washington County comes up near the bottom of that list.

The county is tied for the fifth worst rate of uninsured adults in the state. The worst rate is 28 percent, which is shared by Calloway and Carlisle counties.
