Amwell Grants and Public Funding Program

California Medical Association (CMA) Physician Services also recently announced a partnership with Amwell, a leading telehealth solutions platform. Through this partnership, all California physicians have access to Amwell’s telehealth platform at a discounted rate for the next 12 months and no monthly fees through May 2020.

CMA Physician Services recognizes that not all physician practices have the means to implement the Amwell telehealth solution into their practice, despite the discounted rate. The Amwell Grants and Public Funding Program assists customers who are seeking to secure funding to support implementing telehealth into their practice. While Amwell does not provide or pay for grant writing on a practice’s behalf, it will provide expertise, tools, and grant monitoring to help obtain the funds. For additional details, click here.

CMA Physician Services will continue to actively seek additional funding opportunities and will keep physicians updated as it becomes aware of more.
