KPCA Trust and Benefits
The Kentucky Primary Care Association is able to provide member employers with access to a comprehensive benefits plan, through the Association. The Association is able to offer a range of health insurance plans through Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Delta Dental, with options on vision and hearing benefits. Participants may access cafeteria style plans for disability, life insurance, etc. The Member Clinic will work with the insurance broker designated to the Trust to best decide the organization's benefits for employees. The Trust has the potential to offer employer members access to quality benefits for employees at more affordable pricing.
KPCA works with two insurance agencies, VanMeter/Houchens or the BIM Group, to guide members in assessing the rates, enrolling, followed by the attention and services needed to keep you and your employees happy.
Administrative services of the Association Health & Benefits Trust are handled through ASG- UMR, Lexington, who have over 40 years of experience administering Association and Trust business. The Trust is governed by the Board of the Association with a member employer committee.
