Independent Practice Associations: What are they? How do they work? And will they benefit me?

Event Description: 

When working with integrated care systems, Community Based Organizations (CBOs) may find it beneficial to work collaboratively with other CBOs in a way that allows them to build on one another’s strengths and better position them to meet the needs of integrated care payers. There are a variety of ways to structure this type of collaboration, including Independent Practice Associations (IPAs).

An Independent Practice Association brings together a group of independent CBOs or providers that individually provide services to the organizations responsible for the payment and coordination of long term services and supports such as managed care organizations. Working together through an IPA, CBOs maintain their independence and unique value proposition, while benefiting from the greater efficiency, cost-sharing, risk reduction, and negotiating power obtained through the association.
