American Medical Association
The American Medical Association is the premier national organization dedicated to empowering the nation’s physicians to provide safer, higher quality, and more efficient care for patients and communities. For more than 165 years the AMA has been unwavering in its commitment to using its profound knowledge and unequaled resources to improve the health of the nation.
Together, the AMA and the Colorado Medical Society have helped enact laws to combat prescription drug abuse and simplify the prior authorization process. They also work closely on Medicaid expansion, helping more patients receive health care.
Your membership in the AMA supports action
In addition to your CMS membership, we encourage Colorado physicians to join the AMA to strengthen organized medicine’s efforts within our state and across the nation. We are proud of the work and the outcomes we accomplish together on behalf of our profession. Your membership makes this work possible.
Your AMA membership benefits include:
- The JAMA Network®, which brings together JAMA and nine specialty journals to offer fully integrated access to the research, reviews and perspectives shaping the future of medicine (valued at more than $250)
- Free CME to help you meet your professional education needs
- Free webinars on topics such as opioid prescribing and innovations in payment and delivery models
- Savings on products and services for you and your practice through the AMA Member Value Program
Additionally, CMS delegates to the AMA House of Delegates serve as an important link to communications, policy and membership between the AMA and grass-roots physicians, and AMA members are eligible to apply for and attend AMPAC’s Campaign School and Candidate Workshop. AMPAC graduates have been elected to public offices across the country, including the U.S. Congress.
You will see the AMA dues included on the dues statements you receive from CMS. We urge you to continue your membership in the CMS and the AMA—and we make it easy for you to do that through CMS.
