Recent News: UPDATED 12.29.2017

The San Juan IPA was founded in 1986 by a group of 21 community physicians to partner with

insurance companies with the goal of improving the quality of care to patients while simultaneously

decreasing the cost of care to those payers. Originally formed with a “Quality Assurance Committee”,

the San Juan IPA has grown to over 450 members representing 39 specialties and sub-specialties

in 70+ offices across New Mexico, a HEDIS quality review function, a Credentialing Committee,

and a care management committee component.

As an NCQA-accredited organization, San Juan IPA’s core services of contracting and

credentialing are complemented by an array of expanding resources for the physician office,

helping keep practice costs low and quality of care high.  We continually look for ways to

promote new quality initiatives both within and outside the practice walls for patients and employers.

  1. To ensure that a heath care delivery system is in place, which provides available, accessible and adequate numbers of facilities, locations, and personnel for the provision of health care services.
  2. To ensure that a health plan members are provided covered services without regard to race, color, creed, sex, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, marital status, sexual preference or physical or mental handicap.
  3. To ensure that the SJIPA has in place the organizational and administrative systems capable of messaging medical services contracts between providers and third party vendors
  4. To ensure that the quality of care to all patients continues at the highest level of  care possible.  
  5. Provide support for community health education and wellness.
