University Physicians’ Association, Inc. (UPA) is a unique player in the healthcare market governed by a team of multi-specialty physicians.  The healthcare industry continues to bring new challenges and UPA is no exception.  What began as a need to secure the clinical practice 20 years ago, remains the same need today.  UPA is an established business that combines years of clinical and administrative experience with healthcare business operations.  With our current multi-specialty membership reaching over 800, UPA’s reputation in the East Tennessee communities remain solid as we provide solutions for physicians and their staff from the administrative pressures that interfere with patient care.  Our 740 (plus) team members are passionate about what they do.  Equipped to assist the physician practice with complex and sensitive issues, UPA’s Human Resources and Co-Employment Services ensure that clients and team members achieve a competitive advantage.  UPA billing clients benefit from our dedicated staff that closely monitor accounts to identify problems within the revenue cycle while optimizing results.

UPA’s alliance with The University of Tennessee Medical Center, University Health System, Inc., (UHS, Inc.) and The Graduate School of Medicine are imperative with the uncertain direction of healthcare.  UPA remains committed to participate in an integrated healthcare delivery system with University Health System, Inc.

Our association provides multiple services for the clinical practice such as co-employment services, credentialing, human resources, managed care services, marketing, medical billing, and practice management.  Being physician established, physician owned and physician led; UPA seeks to be positioned and ready to advance in any direction in which healthcare leads.
