Merit Independent Physician Association
Incorporated in 2013, Merit IPA is Savannah’s premier network of non-affiliated and independent specialists. Currently, Merit IPA is comprised of over 135 physicians representing 20 specialties from 24 individual practices. We are fortunate to be composed of the region’s highest quality and specialized providers, who’s motivation is twofold; First, to improve care via better coordination between providers and, second, to reduce payer cost by avoiding duplicate care. Merit IPA was also developed to provide a vehicle for advocacy at the local and state levels. A platform to have an open dialogue with other providers, payers, legislative officials, and other provider based associations for the purpose of building strength in the foundation of today’s independent provider.
In March, 2015, Merit IPA's first Annual Members meeting welcomed Department of Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens, Congressmen Buddy Carter, and Donald Palmisano Jr., CEO of The Medical Association of Georgia, to discuss pressing legislative issues affecting independent physicians.
