What is an IPA?

IPA stands for "Independent Practice Association". Independently practicing physicians (physicians with their own independent practices) join an IPA, and you as member of the IPA can see any of these doctors.

What is THIPA (Torrance Health IPA)?

Torrance Health Independent Practice Association (THIPA), is a non-profit multi-specialty physician network and a division of the Torrance Memorial Health System. THIPA has been taking care of the South Bay for more than 30 years. Our members have access to convenient and high-quality care from over 450 primary care physicians and specialists as well as the nationally recognized Torrance Memorial Medical Center.

THIPA is not an insurance plan (or a health plan).

We contract with your health plan that provides financial coverage for your medical care. As your “Medical Group” or "Physician Network", THIPA provides the medical care covered by your health plan.
