Our History – Development of the UPAL Member Advantage
UPAL was founded in 1985 by five Tulsa physicians. Managed medical care, which drove down physician reimbursement, had just entered the Tulsa market place. The forethought and vision of these physicians manifested itself in the form of a business cooperative which would collectively develop programs and services to drive down business overhead and personal costs.
Today, the Association has nearly 800 member physicians in 18 states and provide a myriad of benefits and thoroughly “vetted” preferred business relationships to its members. These programs and services range from financial services to office equipment and from payroll services to electronic data interchange vendors. Together, they comprise the UPAL Member Advantage.
As a member of UPAL, you have the Advantage of participating in UPAL group purchasing services, financial services (including the Retirement Program), the managed care contract review service and the many other programs and services listed on this web site.
The UPAL Member Advantage can benefit you, your employees and your family – personally and professionally.
