Great Falls Physicians IPA (GFMD IPA) offers many benefits to our member physicians: reduced malpractice insurance costs and access to legal and managed care consultants. GFMD IPA has also developed a Physician Hospital Organization with Benefis. Currently this PHO offers a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) called Treasure State Healthcare Network to community employers.
