MCIC Study Reveals Many IPAs Rely on Managed Care Revenue

Manasquan, N.J. -- Among IPAs (independent practice associations) with more than one source of revenue, about 46 percent indicated their revenues came from managed care and only one other source (see table below), according to an exclusive analysis of data gathered for The Managed Care Information Center's "The National Directory of Physician Organizations, Second Edition."

(a) Excludes IPAs with only one revenue source.
Note: Percents may not equal 100 due to rounding.

Among IPAs with only two sources of revenue, three in six said their revenues came from managed care and Medicare contracts. Two in six said revenues came from managed care and Medicaid contracts. And, one in six said revenues came from managed care and indemnity contracts.

Surprisingly, of all the IPAs included in the analysis (including those with only one source of revenue), IPAs with two or more sources of revenue only accounted for about 25 percent of all IPAs. About 74.1 of the IPAs indicated a single source of revenue -- for the most part managed care was the most popular method for IPAs in this group.

MCIC's "National Directory of Physician Organizations, Second Edition" is now available in print and electronic formats. The directory offers information on more than 3,100 physician organizations. Copies of the directory are now in stock and can be shipped immediately.
