Your health, your choice. As the Open Enrollment period approaches, this fall, it’s essential to be well informed about your options for healthcare. 

What is Open Enrollment?  

Open Enrollment is a crucial time for individuals/families to make important decisions about health insurance coverage for the upcoming year. Think of it as an annual window of opportunity to learn about offerings in your health insurance, make changes to your existing coverage, or enroll in a new plan.  

At Hill Physicians, we understand the significance of this period and we’re here to help you navigate through the process, explain our partnership with health plans and ensure you get the best care possible.  

Who is Hill Physicians Medical Group?   

You might have heard of IPA as a type of beer, but at Hill Physicians, we’re talking about something just as refreshing – Independent Physician Association. Now, choosing healthcare insurance might not sound as thrilling as grabbing a beer with a friend, but believe us, selecting the right IPA is important.  An IPA is a network of doctors who own and operate their own practices instead of being salaried employees of a larger healthcare system. Our physicians are deeply passionate about people and provide personalized care – Care for Every Body

Hill Physicians is the largest network of independent doctors in Northern California with over 5,000 primary care and specialty physicians across 12 regions spanning the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento, and San Joaquin Valley. As the largest network, we offer a broad selection of physicians and hospitals, and provide extended care resources such as social workers, nurse case managers, and health educators who can assist in guiding you through medical and personal crisis.  We also have an excellent Customer Service Team who can help answer your questions about authorizations and identification of physicians available to new patients.

Am I Required to Select a Medical Group (IPA)? 

YES! If you are participating in a HMO or a Medicare Advantage plan, you are required to join a medical group. This is one of the mysteries in healthcare; many people don’t know they are part of any medical group.  Many physicians today are employed by a large, closed network like Kaiser, or owned by a hospital group (John Muir or Sutter).  The IPAs, Independent Physician Associations, like Hill Physicians, help those physicians who are committed to remaining independent and practicing personalized healthcare.  WHY JOIN Hill Physicians MEDICAL GROUP this open enrollment?
