AlaskaCare Introduces New Blog


Hi! I’m KYP – that’s short for Know Your Plan.You might recognize me from my column in the HealthMatters newsletters. I wanted to share some exciting news with you – I got a second job! I’m now blogging over at

I think this will be a great opportunity for me to get information out to you more quickly than the newsletter. But just like my column, my blog is all about helping you understand the AlaskaCare Health Plans.

You can find me by clicking the button below – the same button you’ll find at

KYP Button

So please take a minute to visit my blog to read a little more about the AlaskaCare Health Plans. You can bookmark the page to make it easier to visit regularly. Or, you can subscribe so you’ll know when I’ve posted something new.

I’m pretty excited about both my jobs and hope you will be too. Happy reading!
