FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentuckians can keep their health insurance policies that do not comply with the federal Affordable Care Act for an extra year.

The Kentucky Department of Insurance announced Friday it will allow health insurance companies to extend their non-compliant policies through Oct. 1, 2017. The original deadline had been Oct. 1, 2016.

Insurance companies have until May 5 to notify the state whether they choose to extend the policies.

The extension does not affect new plans or plans in place prior to March 23, 2010.
