Keeping in step with the changing realities of the practice of medicine and the business of health care, CMA understands the unique challenges facing health care providers. Change is inevitable – and CMA remains ready to meet the demands of the future to support the invaluable benefits that physicians and medical groups provide for California’s communities.
