Two Agencies Receive Grant to Implement Kentucky Care Integration

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services has been awarded a federal grant to implement Kentucky Care Integration, a five-year, $10 million project to promote the integration of primary care and behavioral health in two regions of the Commonwealth. Kentucky was one of three states chosen by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to receive the Promoting Integration of Primary Behavioral Health Care grant. The two region providers to implement KCI are Centerstone of Kentucky and Mountain Comprehensive Care Center. These community health centers will work to integrate services while implementing collaborative relationships with other qualified health centers and community partners. KCI will have four focus populations for individuals with physical health conditions at risk of developing chronic health conditions, including adults with substance use disorders.
