Heritage Physician Network is an independent physician association (IPA) that was organized in 1995 to benefit small to large independent practices in the Houston metropolitan area. Our network now has over 800 providers serving over 20,000 patients.
- We are composed mainly of primary care practices, but welcome specialists, acute, and post-acute care providers into our network.
- Our participating providers have increased revenue potential from more favorable Fee For-Service payments, value-based payer programs, and group purchasing contracts.
- HPN is provider-led and organized to participate effectively in federal, state, and private payer value-based programs such as:
- the Medicare Shared Savings Program
- Direct Contracting Model
- Primary Care First Model
- Commercial Health Plans
- Medicare Advantage
