Primary Care Services at KentuckyCare
Primary care refers to the care you receive when you see a doctor or other healthcare provider about a health problem for the first time. When you are having health issues and need medical care, a primary care provider can help.
Each day, we help patients with health concerns like:
Primary care providers can also provide you with ongoing care and conduct routine checkups. These providers become your main healthcare providers for wellness and sick visits.
There are some important benefits of having a primary care provider. When you choose one, you will be seeing the same provider over and over again for your healthcare needs rather than going to different providers. Your provider at KentuckyCare will become familiar with your medical history and any health issues you are currently experiencing, which can make it easier to detect and diagnose problems early.
When you have a primary care provider, you also have access to other experts that act as part of your healthcare team, including nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. This team can help you manage chronic conditions and treat acute or temporary health problems.
