The Central Oregon Independent Practice Association (COIPA) is a non-profit community of providers in Central Oregon and the Columbia Gorge established in 1992. 

Our passion is supporting independent primary care and specialty medical practices by providing a range of services, including: 


Since our founding, COIPA has grown to nearly 750 individual members in over 120 independent medical practices, ranging from solo providers to large multi-specialty groups. Our service area covers 40,000 square miles of Central Oregon and consists of a network of physicians and associate providers including nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurse midwives. COIPA members demonstrate their commitment to high-quality healthcare participating in a wide range of state, regional, and IPA-led clinical quality reporting and incentive programs. 


COIPA members are either Participating Physicians (MD, DO) or Associate Providers (PA, NP, CNM, CRNA, OD or DPM). They must have a current license to practice in Oregon or Washington, be a resident of a twelve-county region, and maintain a minimum level of malpractice insurance coverage. Additional membership conditions may apply including specialty-specific call sharing and/or maintaining hospital privileges within COIPA's service area.
