Member Benefits

Benefits of CCPA

  • Managed Care Contracts

    CCPA manages payor contracting on behalf of its members through a "messenger model." As the area's only pediatric Independent Physician Association (IPA), CCPA works to execute fee-for-service managed care contracts for pediatricians and pediatric specialists. CCPA's contracts protect physicians' interests and accommodate the unique needs of pediatric providers.  Learn more about CCPA managed care plans.

  • Delegated Credentialing and Recredentialing with All Contracted Managed Care Plans

    One of the benefits of being a member, is CCPA offers a one-stop credentialing with all of its managed care payors. This means that once you have become credentialed with CCPA, you will not need to be credentialed with each one of our plans individually. In addition, you will not be required to submit recredentialing paperwork to any of our managed care plans. You will only need to complete one recredentialing application for CCPA every 36 months.

  • Support for Managed Care Issues

    As an advantage to participating in CCPA's managed care agreements, CCPA's staff will help you with any reimbursement or claim issues that may come up with any of CCPA's contracted plans. In addition, if any of your information ever changes, CCPA will send notice to our managed care plans on your behalf.
