The Humboldt Independent Practice Association

Since 1963, we have been a partner in delivering quality health care in Humboldt County, by fostering local accountability while providing appropriate, proficient, cost effective medical care for the people of our community. 

The Humboldt IPA provides leadership in working with health plans and health care providers to ensure that medical care is provided in a manner that enhances the public health and promotes access to quality care.

Effective January 1, 2015, the Humboldt-Del Norte Foundation for Medical Care (Foundation or FMC) has merged with the Humboldt-Del Norte Independent Practice Association (IPA).  Together, the organizations will do business as the “Humboldt IPA” and continue to perform all Foundation services and conduct all IPA business as usual.
