Member Discount Services

Office Depot Discount Program

The IPA and Office Depot Business Services Division have established an agreement for purchasing office supplies at a discounted rate for IPA members.

Referring Relationship Opportunities

New associate members and some new staff members of the IPA indicate an interest in establishing referring relationships with St. Luke’s practitioners in particular specialties. We will be offering these opportunities to IPA members on a rotational basis.

You will be provided with information (demographics, specialty, education, etc.) on the requesting physician and asked to contact him/her. Please understand that, if you choose to be a part of the database, you are making a commitment to communicate with the requesting physician.

If you have any questions or would like to recommend a primary care physician for the associate program, please contact Physician Relations by telephone at 832-355-2670. We hope that you will want to participate in this opportunity to further strengthen our physician network.

Texas Medical Liability Trust (TMLT) Discount Program

Your membership in this network entitles you to take advantage of the professional liability insurance coverage program that St. Luke's IPA has arranged with Texas Medical Liability Trust (TMLT).

The coverage program offers participants who qualify a 14% overall network program discount, and for current TMLT insureds renewing in 2013.  Additional premium reductions can be earned by various risk management activities offered by TMLT, including CME discounts (3%-6% up to a maximum of $2,000) and a Practice Review credit (5%).  There is also a 2.5% EMR credit for those using an EMR or ePrescribing system for at least a year.  This discount is given in conjunction with the Practice Review.  These discounts are available to current TMLT insureds as well as new TMLT insureds.  Finally, TMLT provides credits for those physicians covered by TMLT with a claims free history after 3 years with those credits increasing through longevity.

Please note that this opportunity to participate in the coverage program is not a requirement of participation in St. Luke's IPA and is not an endorsement by St. Luke's IPA or St. Luke's Medical Center. 

Should you have any questions, please call 1-800-580-8658, extension 5926.
