IPN and Moda Health (Moda) previously announced the termination of its network relationship effective September 30, 2021. IPN and Moda later decided to extend the partnership through December 31, 2021. Now, IPN and Moda have agreed to extended the relationship again through June 30, 2022 to allow even more time for direct contracting and a smoother employer group transition.

For providers in Ada, Adams, Canyon, Gem, Idaho, Owyhee, Payette and Washington counties:
If a contract has been completed and executed with Moda, no further action is required.
If a contract has NOT been completed, contact Moda to begin the process and avoid being out of network.

For providers outside of Ada, Adams, Canyon, Gem, Idaho, Owyhee, Payette and Washington counties: IPN network discounts will continue to be utilized through June 30, 2022. Out of network status will not apply until July 1, 2022.
