Arthur A. Rubin, MD

Arthur A. Rubin, MD Dr. Arthur A. Rubin, a New Jersey native, attended the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated from Georgetown Medical School and studied psychiatry for 18 months at Georgetown before going on to an Internal Medicine residency. After becoming board-certified, Dr. Rubin worked for a California HMO as an internal medicine hospitalist consultant in a position that triaged patients into and out of the hospital as medically indicated. That experience enabled Dr. Rubin to recognize that many patient’s who, ordinarily were being treated in the hospital, preferred to, and could be, managed as outpatients.

Being an Easterner at heart, Dr. Rubin returned to Virginia and opened an Internal Medicine practice in 1978. He and Dr. Major became associates and opened up a practice next to the old Arlington Hospital in 1983. Since that time the practice has grown to it’s current level and has 2 locations, one in Fairfax and the other in the Ballston area of Arlington.

As an outgrowth of Dr. Rubin’s original hospitalist experience in California, GIMG physicians have always been sensitive to the outpatient preference of many patients, and where appropriate, helped them meet that goal.

Dr. Rubin has also been involved in many activities geared toward management of patients in the outpatient setting such as:

  • starting one of the the first Individual Practice Associations in Virginia in 1989,
  • founding NCPPO a managed care insurance company,
  • founding MDxL a hospital management company,
  • and now being a founder of HCIPA.
He has been President of the Virginia Society of Internal Medicine and the Northern Virginia Academy of Medicine and a former member of the Medical Society of Virginia Peer Review Organization. Dr Rubin consulted for Blue Cross Blue Shield on beginning their first managed care plan, Capitol Care, and his IPA successfully accepted global capitation from Capitol Care. He was a participant in the formation of the current CareFirst PCMH program and GIMG was one of the original groups included in the pilot program for the NCQA approved Medical Home Program.

In 1999 Dr Rubin was part of a team of consultants sent to Hungary by US AID to speak on medical issues concerning the privatization of Health Care.

Dr. Rubin lives in McLean and is married to Beth York, a lawyer specializing in estates and trusts, and has 2 daughters, Margaret and Amy. Margaret attended Amherst College and is a lawyer in Washington D.C. and works at the SEC. Amy, attended Vassar College and has a video production company and lives in LA.
