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 400 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.
