Knoxville Area Project Access is a broad-based community charity created to provide access to health care for low-income, uninsured individuals in Knox County. KAPA is a program under the leadership of the Knoxville Academy of Medicine Foundation. The KAM Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Knoxville Academy of Medicine, the medical society for
Knox County physicians.
Since 2006, Knoxville Area Project Access has coordinated more than $190 million dollars in donated health care to more than 22,000 low-income East Tennesseans without access to health insurance or government-sponsored program. KAPA coordinated over 40,000 medical encounters in 2016.
KAPA patients receive a full continuum of care administered by a network of over 1,426 physicians and providers, along with all area hospitals, who donate services to help our neighbors in need.
