Member Benefits

Physicians face increasing public scrutiny, legal attacks, cuts in reimbursements and legislative efforts to micromanage practices. When physicians unite through organized medicine, they become powerful and effective advocates for patients and the medical profession.
 
The Fresno Madera Medical Society (FMMS) and the California Medical Association (CMA) provide powerful advocacy for physicians and patients alike. Through these interlinked organizations, physicians have a strong voice at every level in government. The combined membership of FMMS and CMA provide innovative member benefits and practical resources. Physicians can offset the price of their annual membership dues when using member services and discounts. 

Through membership, you hire a powerful professional staff to protect the viability of your practice. By protecting your practice from legal, legislative, and regulatory intrusions, membership lets you focus on what is really important to you, providing care to your patients.
