Solo and Small Group Practice Physicians

Solo and small group practice physicians face myriad challenges in today's economic climate. When you join the California Medical Association (CMA) and your local component medical society, you hire a professional staff to protect the viability of your practice. CMA continuously fights to protect the physician-patient relationship, preserve physician independence, empower physicians to identify and fight unfair payment practices and help you get reimbursed for providing care.
