Join the IEFMC Network
Membership in the IEFMC network brings many benefits to physicians and other healthcare providers. Our no-risk, fee-for-service contracts offer our members reimbursement rates that are comparable to Medicare's. Also, because of our affiliation with the California Foundation for Medical Care, our members belong to one of the largest PPOs in California. The combined IEFMC/CFMC network features a large patient base and a variety of payers. All medical specialties are represented in the network, with no restrictions on referrals.
Because IEFMC is a nonprofit entity governed by physicians, the network is designed to support our members rather than to squeeze them for profits. All members are automatically enrolled in our PPO network. We also offer an exclusive provider organization (EPO) network and a worker’s compensation organization (WCO) network. See the types of networks section below for more details.
Physicians and other providers in the IEFMC service area are welcome to apply for membership at any time. Our staff handles the entire credentialing process, and most applications can be approved within a matter of weeks.
