About Us

What is a medical group?

Anyone who has HMO coverage through their health plan needs to choose a medical group. Your medical group is the connection between your health plan and you. We help organize and coordinate all of your care. When you choose us, you will receive extra health and wellness benefits - there is no additional cost to you.

Our purpose: To better every life we touch through the way we care.

Heritage Provider Network (HPN) has provided affordable quality healthcare through its network of medical groups for more than 35 years.

HPN founder Richard Merkin, M.D., President and CEO, is the inspiration behind his organization. As a healthcare visionary, he is focused on change and innovation – and this consistent growth is a testament to our quality as we meet the needs of our members throughout Southern California.

High quality standards

We actively work to exceed quality standards. Our groups have delivered a 4.5+ STAR rating based on CMS guidelines. This high focus on quality has fueled our growth over the last decade. Throughout our service area in Southern California, we currently have more than 500,000 members.

Understanding your family

Since we know that everyone should have a doctor who understands their needs, culture, and speaks their language, we are proud to have the largest physician-owned network in Southern California with thousands of doctors for our members to choose from. Plus, we contract with hundreds of hospitals and other healthcare facilities, enabling our members to have confidence that their families are receiving outstanding healthcare.

Healthy support

We provide extra support for members who have serious health issues or chronic conditions. We also have many health education classes available for everyone in the family, from babies to older adults, like exercise programs for all ages, healthy shopping and cooking tips, prenatal and postnatal care, and more.
