UCIPA and TBPG formed Tampa Bay Integrated Healthcare Network, LLC (TBIH) in December 2012. It is physician owned and managed and the first physician-led Clinically integrated Network (CIN) in the Tampa Bay area. TBIH has an Accountable Care Incentive Plan (ACIP) program with Florida Blue without a hospital system. This is the first of its kinds with Florida Blue. TBIH also has a Collaborative Accountable Care Agreement (CAC) with CIGNA. Our team of physicians are committed to supporting our patients toward better health and minimize costs by sharing medical information and meeting quality targets. Quality care, reduced hospital readmissions, controlling costs, all increase our potential for a performance bonus payment. You must be a member of UCIPA or TBPG to join TBIH. For more information, please contact us.
