Frequently Asked Questions

​What is the difference between Hill Physicians and my HMO or health insurance plan? 

Medical groups, like Hill Physicians, contract with health plans and take responsibility for the care of their members. On behalf of health plans, medical groups make sure these members have access to what they need to stay healthy and well. This includes doctors, hospitals, urgent care centers, and health programs and resources. Learn how medical groups work with health plans...
