UPA Co-Employee Services


Human Resource Services

Are you losing crucial time in your office because of essential responsibilities with human resource matters? Handling employee issues in any physician practice is time consuming. At University Physicians’ Association (UPA), we endeavor to provide services and resources designed to empower your practice by equipping you with a cost-effective solution to the management of human resources, benefits, and payroll.

Many complex employee-related issues are time sensitive, but most physician practices do not have the luxury of human resource departments to assist with these necessities. Many businesses lack the necessary knowledge and time to keep up with compliance, insurance, payroll, and benefit management. UPA understands the complex and sensitive logistics surrounding human resources and employee relations.

How UPA Can Enhance Your Physician Practice

Your business will be able to provide affordable benefits and — equally important — attract and retain the most talented employees by partnering with UPA. Using the purchase power of a larger organization like UPA, you will experience an improvement in the rates of many employee benefits. UPA does not manage your employees, but equips you with a cost-effective solution to the management of human resources, benefits, and payroll.

Under an Employment Services Agreement, our clients place their employees onto UPA payroll, thus transferring the client's following liabilities to UPA:

  • Payroll administration and processing
  • Retirement
  • Medical, dental, and vision
  • Life and cancer
  • Short-term and long-term disability plans
  • Flexible spending account (FSA)
  • Direct Deposit
  • Performs background verifications and drug screens
  • Advertises open positions
  • Human resources consulting
  • Maintain employee files

While UPA does not manage your business, we do extend professional support in handling tough legal questions and guidance concerning employee relations and workplace regulations that change each year. Our services provide you the freedom you need to concentrate on your business.
