About CIPA

Established in 2005, the Consortium of Independent Physician Associations (CIPA) is a regional network of 30 physician organizations representing 900 physicians (primary care and specialists) dedicated to the practice of independent medicine.

CIPA creates the opportunity for smaller groups of physicians to participate in pay-for-performance programs and value-based contracts that are normally only available to larger groups. Members include individual practices, group practices, rural health clinics, Federally Qualified Health Centers, and physician hospital organizations.
