What Makes THIPA Unique

  • Get direct referral to additional specialists by your primary care physician — no need for prior authorization
  • Schedule same-day appointments — call for physician availability
  • Get care in the evening and on weekends at Torrance Memorial Urgent Care Centers in Torrance or Manhattan Beach
  • Access a Nurse Care Coordinator who will provide support and help you navigate the medical system to get the care you need
