How to Join

Joining THIPA is easy, and can be done in just three simple steps.

1. Select your THIPA doctor

Learn about our primary care doctors by searching online by specialty, ZIP code, or language, or download a print-friendly THIPA provider directory.

If you have questions about who would best fit your needs, a representative at the THIPA Resource Center can talk with you about what’s important to you and then recommend candidates they think you’ll feel comfortable seeing. The Resource Center is available by phone at (310) 257-7239 (TTY: 711). Remember, each member of your family can have a different primary care physician.

2. Choose THIPA

After you choose your THIPA doctor, select THIPA as your medical group or physician network. As your medical group, THIPA provides the medical care covered by your insurance plan. Once you are a member, you’ll have access to our broad network of physicians and health care providers, as well as our hospital and urgent care centers.

3. Select an Insurance Plan

Whether you have an employer, individual or Medicare plan, THIPA is available through a variety of insurance plans. Review the insurance plans we accept. Consider plan coverage and benefits, and your specific medical needs and those of family members. And of course, make sure you have chosen THIPA as your medical group.
