Physician Founded, Service Driven

Monroe Plan was founded in 1970 by a small number of prominent, progressive minded Western New York physicians. Today Monroe Plan’s IPA represents an extensive, established network of approximately 12,000 physicians, allied healthcare professionals, and related ancillary based agencies across the Western, Central and the Finger Lakes Region of New York. We are proud of our 50-plus year history of representing providers who serve our communities most vulnerable populations.

What is an IPA?

An IPA is not an insurance company or a health care plan. Rather, the IPA is an alliance of providers and practitioners under one entity that:

  • Represents the best interest of the IPA members in contract negotiations
  • Advocates for the network by understanding the collective, critical operational and performance challenges and working toward resolution to the greatest extent possible
  • Provides value added services to the IPA that meet the changing needs of our members
