In these turbulent times

MSMS has your back

MSMS Works for Physicians Every Day
  • Maintaining the Physician-led Health Care Team
    Others want to do what you do without your education and training. For the sake of patient safety and quality care, MSMS fights to keep physicians at the head of the health care team.
  • At the Table with Payers and Government
    Stopping a proposed physician tax, supporting increased access to care, and streamlining cumbersome payer reporting requirements are among hundreds of issues we deal with daily.
  • Making Your Practice Run Smoother
    Legal alerts, coding and billing support, practice management education, office supply discounts, and other vital resources and tools are available to members in person and online.
  • Preserving Our Nation-leading Tort Reforms
    MSMS fought for years to enact some of the nation's best tort reform in 1993 and has battled relentlessly ever since to protect them from legislative and judicial threats.
