Contract Network

The University Physicians’ Association (UPA) is dedicated to negotiating fair and equitable contracts for our physician shareholders. Governed by a physician-led board of directors and its own committees, UPA seeks to contract with a wide range of insurance payers on our members' behalf. UPA physician shareholders actively participate in the contract process by providing insight into their practice patterns and interaction history with our carriers.
