The Kentucky Primary Care Association (KPCA) operates a clinically integrated Independent Practice Association (IPA), which contracts with Medicaid Managed Care Organizations, Medicare, and commercial health plans on behalf of KPCA members. The IPA aims to create a high-performing preferred provider network with financially stable membership providing cost-effective, high-quality, patient-centered primary care. In 2020 KPCA paid out over 3.7 Million dollars in PMPM payments and incentives.

*Membership is open only to certified members of the Kentucky Primary Care Association.
