LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Former Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear is heading to D.C. to discuss health care.

Beshear will give the opening keynote address Monday at the Academy Health National Health Policy Conference.

According to his Facebook page, Beshear was invited because of Kentucky's success with health care reform and the implementation of Kynect. 

After the announcement, Beshear tweeted, "Already the national model for transformative health care initiatives, why would Kentucky reverse course?"

Earlier this month, Governor Matt Bevin told federal officials he will dismantle "Kynect" -- the state health insurance exchange.
