ASPA has partnered with UHC Spectrum, this is a free primary care support program designed to help with transitions of care, pharmacy management, and referral management to help your patients stay on track with their health plans. United Healthcare Care Coordination is a no-cost, no-obligation benefit for your practice. Contact Jennifer Urbonas@uhc.com or by phone at 303-993-1716. A flyer providing more information will be sent soon.

Arizona Medical Group Management Association (AzMGMA) has been your MGMA state chapter since 1994 with a dedicated focus on professional development of our members through education, networking, and advocacy to maximize the profitability of your practice. Different from national MGMA, AzMGMA focuses not only on what is happening nationally, but also what is happening locally to impact your practice. For only $100 a year, your practice will have access to the following and more:

    1. Monthly educational webinars (no charge for members)
    2. Scaling and Adapting Your Practice in 2021
    3. Cyber Crime in 2021 and How Covid Has Affected Companies
    4. AZ Legislative Update
    5. Preparing for Evaluation and Management Changes in 2021
  • Quarterly in-person events (to be resumed) for networking and colleague exchange
  • AzMGMA Annual Conference at a discounted rate
  • Opportunity to serve on AzMGMA Committees to help determine how best to support practices

ASPA has entered into a contract with Prospect Medical Systems, a national IPA to allow our Members access to contracts which are value based that ASPA does not have current access to. Providers will be able to choose which plans they want to participate in (Opt-In). Example of possible plans: SCAN; Cigna; Aetna; Bright Health; United and Wellcare. The Opt-In for Prospect has been faxed and emailed to all of our Members, if you did not receive this, please contact Karen Ellington at karen@azspa.com. Prospect Medical will be holding a webinar to provide information. ASPA encourages you to attend this webinar on Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 12:00 to 1:00. Please contact Jaime.Melkonoff@prospectmedical.com for a link to the webinar.
