About Us

COMPREHENSIVE CARE

In close partnership with clients, CHIPA, in alliance with Beacon Health Options, helps bring together the fragmented pieces of health care to achieve better results for the people in our care. Our programs are clinically driven, fiscally responsible, and focused on allowing our members to live their lives to the fullest potential.

Since 1991, the College Health IPA (CHIPA) has provided managed behavioral health services to California residents, making it one of the state’s largest regional behavioral health delivery systems to address the issues presented by behavioral health and chronic disease. Beacon Health Options is a Massachusetts-based, NCQA-accredited managed behavioral health organization.
