Established to Serve Michigan’s Independent Practices

CIPA is a physician organization consisting of independent practices in over 80 Michigan counties. Our organization enables small groups of physicians to participate in pay-for-performance programs and value-based payer contracts normally only available to larger groups. As a physician, you maintain autonomy in the practice of independent medicine and maintain full control over the financial health of your practice. As a CIPA member, you gain access to invaluable resources, no matter where you are in the state.

Physicians in CIPA benefit from regular in-practice and virtual visits with our team of expert coaches, who work closely with practice administration and staff to improve clinical and financial outcomes.​ CIPA does not require membership fees.

  • Independent Practices
