Dentists.

The Kentucky Physicians Care Program exists through the generosity of volunteer dentists from across the state. Dentists provide a valuable service by treating eligible patients, giving oral examinations.

To encourage continued support from the medical community, Health Kentucky makes it as easy as possible for dentists to participate.

Q. Why should a Dentist – DMD/DDS participate in the Kentucky Physicians Care program?

No paperwork. You are not required to maintain any paperwork or fill out forms other than your own standard office files.

Careful screening. Patients are screened by the local Department for Community Based Services office to ensure they do not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid or are not privately insured.

If you are already seeing patients for free or giving them a special payment plan. This program empowers the dentists to examine the patient and, if needed, give them a prescription drug that will be filled for free.

You set the rules. By participating, dentists agree to see as many patients as they can financially contribute to. Dentists tell Health Kentucky how many patients they want to see and we honor their requests.

Convenient scheduling. Use normal appointment procedures. If you can’t see a patient for several weeks, patients can call the hot line for a referral to another dentist.

The right to refuse any patient. Because participation is voluntary, dentists have the right to refuse to see any patient.

One visit free of charge. Because participating dentists generally don’t want to begin an open-ended arrangement, the first routine office visit is all a dentist is required to provide for free. Any subsequent visits are based on your arrangements with the eligible patients. However, many dentists continue to see patients in their office.

Network Support. Dentists across the state can participate in this program, along with dental schools or any licensed dental office facility.

Pharmacies:

The Kentucky Pharmacy Providers Program consists of hospital and retail pharmacies that generously donate their services to fill prescriptions for eligible patients. To encourage continued support from the state’s pharmacies, Health Kentucky makes it as easy as possible for pharmacies to participate.

Q. Why should a pharmacy participate in the Kentucky Pharmacy Providers program?

Medications are the key. A physician can diagnose a patient’s illness, but without access to proper medications the treatment ends.

Pharmacists and pharmaceutical manufacturers play a key role in treating patients.

Electronic Reimbursement. Pharmacies will “bill” Anthem Prescription Management (APM) to get reimbursed for medications that are provided to eligible patients. Reimbursement consists of replenishing the supply of dispensed medications. APM will provide details about which medications are covered so pharmacies will know the medications they fill will be reimbursed. APM will also know if the patient is eligible at the time you fill the prescription. This will eliminate the paperwork involved in requesting reimbursement for eligible patients’ prescriptions.

Medication Availability. Four pharmaceutical manufacturers donate prescription drugs to assist the uninsured through the Health Kentucky program. This ensures that pharmacies will be reimbursed for the prescriptions they dispense. The pharmaceutical companies are Abbott Laboratories, Johnson & Johnson,  and Pfizer.

Careful screening. Patients are screened by the local Department for Community Based Services office to ensure they do not qualify for Medicare or Medicaid or are not privately insured.

Network Support. Thousands of physicians, participate in the program. Hundreds of pharmacies fill prescriptions from the free medications provided by the participating pharmaceutical manufacturers.

The right to refuse any patient. Because participation is voluntary, pharmacies have the right to refuse to fill any prescription.

Replenishment of Products. Participating pharmacies fill prescriptions for patients, submit replenishment information and are reimbursed for the medications from the participating pharmaceutical companies, usually within 30 days.
