Health Kentucky is a non-profit organization that has provided free health care to more than 300,000 patients since it's inception in 1984. Health Kentucky was at the forefront of helping Kentucky's low income patients gain access to health care when it began its mission in 1984 as a private non profit 501(c)(3) organization.
The volunteer health care providers, dentists and four pharmaceutical companies provide free health care and medications to eligible patients through programs sponsored by their respective state trade and professional associations. Patient eligibility is determined by Health Kentucky or approved satellite site once the correct paperwork/eligibility documentation is received. Health Kentucky has formed partnerships with state trade and professional associations, volunteer health care providers, the Cabinet for Health Services, and the Cabinet for Families and Children. Eligible patients receive free medical, dental care and medications through a statewide network of volunteer doctors, pharmacies and dentists.
