The Kansas City Metropolitan Physician Association, LLC (KCMPA) is a physician-led organization working to make medical care better for everyone. The goal of the IPA is to make the lives of physicians and practice managers easier.  We do this in two ways:  execution of fair, balanced contracts with managed care organizations and health plans which will direct volume; and using the size of the IPA to negotiate rates for services and supplies used by physician practices.

KCMPA was created by physicians, for physicians and is led by a physician board of directors and executive team who believe in collaboration. Built on the principles of the patient-centered medical home, KCMPA is building out the patient-centered medical neighborhood to provide medical services in a seamless, coordinated manner that values the independence of providers. KCMPA was established to meet the challenges and opportunities of the changing health care system.
