Integration Update for KentuckyOne Health Providers: Sept. 23, 2019


Thank you to all of you who attended the forums last week. The leadership at UofL Health and KentuckyOne Health are dedicated to making this a smooth transition for you and our patients.

We are excited that physicians and APCs will be a part of the UofL Health team Nov. 1. As a provider with UofL Physicians, you are joining the largest, multi-specialty physician practice in Louisville with more than 78 sub specialties, 1,200 dedicated staff professionals and more than 700 primary care and specialty physicians.

What an astonishing benefit for our patients. We look forward to seeing how the Power of U transforms UofL Health and our community.

Questions
Thank you to those of you who have reached out to KYOneShare@KentuckyOneHealth.org or UofLHealth@ulp.org with questions. Those questions have been shared with the appropriate integration workgroup and are helping guide integration discussions.

Please be patient, with only two months to complete the transition process, the workgroups are working hard to determine the answers to many of your questions.

1. Is there a discount on University of Louisville tuition?
UofL Health and all of its hospital and physician practice entities is a separate organization from the University of Louisville (UofL). We do not receive discounts on tuition at UofL.

3. What enrollment program does UofL Health use?

Any questions concerning your KentuckyOne Health benefits should be discussed with your KentuckyOne Health Human Resources Business Partner.

5. Will PRN APCs be considered exempt or non-exempt?
