Introducing ASAIPA and your local IPA

Why belong to your local IPA and in particular to ASAIPA?

Now, more than ever, especially with the proposed implementation of NHI, it is important to unite as Primary Care Practitioners, and speak with one voice.

The IPA movement fulfills this role, more particularly at a business level, where it plays the dominant role.
SAMA, with whom ASAIPA and its IPAs have a good working relationship, is more active on the socio-political front and does a good job. ASAIPA exclusively addresses the business needs and aspirations of Independent Practitioners.
Many of our members belong to both ASAIPA and SAMA, which in our opinion, is both prudent and prescient.

In recognition of independent practitioners
in private practice nominated by their peers


Perhaps ASAIPA’s greatest strength.

While it is extremely important that an Independent Practitioner should belong to a local/regional IPA, it is vital that these IPAs belong to a national body that provides a national footprint across the country. Ask the medical aids, the pharmaceutical companies and other bigger institutions out there. They want to deal with an organization with a national footprint, and not just a regional IPA.

Our Vision

Everything that ASAIPA does, it does only for and on behalf of its members and no one else. It believes very strongly that it is vital that the Independent Practitioner is strongly and aggressively represented in the market place and that his/her profession should be protected at all costs, as should be the rights and welfare of our member’s patients.

However, to be successful we need to be a strong and nationally representative organization that has the firm support and backing of its members. Our strength lies in our numbers and your committed support.


The typical IPA encompasses all specialties, but an IPA can be solely for primary care or may be single specialty.

No Practitioner, either in solo practice or in a partnership practice, has the time, the knowledge, the skills, the know-how, or the business acumen to deal with the issues that ASAIPA is dealing with on a daily basis. These encompass items such as contracts, medical aids, threats and legislation from the government, etc. A non-aligned Practitioners is thus very, very isolated in these trying times.
