    The Shared Services offered within the Kentucky Primary Care Association are an opportunity for members to achieve some cost savings in their purchasing and to enable members to pass those savings on to their patients. Through this Shared Savings we are able to collect a small fee on your behalf, which benefits all members. Please check back to this page frequently as we add more more benefits!

    Should you have any questions or ideas to add, please contact Lindey Young or Rachael FitzGerald at 502-227-4379
