HIP contracts with more than 160 hospitals, including major acute care institutions, in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts to provide member services. Members have access to HIP contracted doctors practicing in large multi-specialty outpatient medical centers and outpatient medical centers associated with some of New York's leading hospitals, including Beth Israel Medical Center, St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, St. Barnabas Hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital and Montefiore Medical Center, as well as private physicians practicing in their own offices.

HIP's total network of physicians and other providers, including the networks of subsidiaries, comprises more than 41,000 physicians and other providers in over 61,602 locations in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
