CMA knows that physician practices across California are hurting. Many physicians are experiencing high levels of financial uncertainty and are making difficult choices about the future of their practices. CMA has been advocating at the state and federal level to ensure financially distressed physician practices remain viable to provide care to patients during and after this public health emergency.

On Tuesday, CMA launched a survey so we can learn how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting individual practices. We have already received thousands of responses, but we need to hear from YOU . If you haven’t already, please take our survey. These results help in our ability to tell your story to state and federal lawmakers as they consider future COVID-19 relief efforts.

Please respond to our  brief five-minute survey  no later than April 15, 2020.
