Hello fellow physicians and MedChi members,
Allow me to share a brief introduction… Chesapeake IPA (CIPA) is a Maryland state independent physician network—one of the firsts in the state. Our mission aligns well with that of MedChi—differentiated by a focus on keeping our members independent and thriving amid healthcare reforms from “volume to value.” In addition to my role as Co-Chair of CIPA, a number of MedChi members serve in our leadership as Board members and Medical Directors.
Chesapeake IPA is primary care-led. We work closely with our member practices to deliver better health and better care at a lower cost for the patients served, and hence, they can be rewarded appropriately and financially under today’s value-based payment model. We do so with critical risk and operating support from our MSO (Management Services Organization) partner, Collaborative Health Systems. This includes population health know-how, tools and services to improve quality and efficiency under Medicare and commercial ACO contracts, including those by CareFirst, United, Aetna and Cigna.
Today, Chesapeake IPA’s membership includes more than 170 primary care providers in Maryland. We welcome “like-minded” specialists and acute and post-acute care providers to participate in the IPA and work together to better care for patients in a value-based payment era.
Here are some of the costs and benefits participating member practices can expect:
- Keeping your TIN and independence
- Increased revenue potential with commercial health plans and CMS
- MSO support in payer contracting, care coordination, analytics, technology and risk management
- Introductory (temporary) membership fee of $1
- Flexibility to opt-in/out of IPA-negotiated contracts
- Flexibility to keep and utilize your existing EMR
- Opportunity to become co-owners of IPA

We welcome you to join us in this value-based journey and look forward to working together.
