The Kentucky Primary Care Association is a proud participant in the Kentucky Opioid Response Effort. This effort is to support the already tremendous work being done by Clinics all around the state to help their patients who want to overcome their addiction. KPCA has approached this project as a means to enable to Clinics to use these funds to work through processes and flows towards the sustainability of integrating MAT services, Behavioral/Mental health services with established primary care services. These funds are not used to supplant other funds available. KPCA is applying funds to the most requested issues which were coordination of care and transportation for patients.
KPCA offers funds to member clinics to help with patient transportation to and from behavioral/mental health services, and some limited funds for Peer Support Specialist and Targeted Case Management.
KPCA is also working with the Betty Ford Hazelden Foundation who can offer training for clinical staff for MAT Services, Data Waiver training and working on patient flows and processes. Through this project, some Clinics are working with re-entry programs to alleviate the burden on society of those exiting the retention system, in need of treatment, and a place to go. Through the work of PSSs, coordination of care can be achieved, and a better result for the community and former inmates also achieved.
Just some examples of efforts ongoing in communities around the state.
If you are interested in participating in the KPCA KORE project, please contact Jill Martin, KPCA Director Behavioral Health at 606-279-0676 or email her at
