THREE IMPORTANT REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN

1. INFORMATION

  • You will receive publications from the APMA and CPMA including the Journal of the American Podiatric Physician, the APMA News Magazine, APMA Daily E-News, DPM Managed Care Newsletter, APMA Alerts and the quarterly APMA Coding Letter. Combined, these publications keep you abreast of changes and developments in every area of your practice on both national and state levels.

  • Toll free assistance number for APMA and CPMA members only.

  • Inclusion in the APMA and CPMA Find-a-Podiatrist Websites, as well as inclusion in the APMA Desk Reference. Use these benefits to network or for patient referrals. Available exclusively to CPMA members.

  • CPMA has a professional public relations firm working to educate the public about the importance of doctors of podiatric medicine as health care providers.

2. COST SAVING DISCOUNTS

As a member of the California Podiatric Medical Association, you will receive significant discounts on an array of products and services.

  • Free and discounted Legal Services

  • Significant discounts on numerous continuing education meetings such as the Western Podiatric Medical Congress and the APMA Annual Meeting

  • 15% Discount on your PICA premiums when you attend the PICA risk management seminar at the Western Podiatric Medical Congress

  • Discounts on all of APMA’s foot health publications, audiovisual materials, scientific programs, managed care references, health marketing systems, and more.

3. ADVOCACY AND PUBLIC EDUCATION

Your right to practice to the full extent of your education and training is constantly being challenged in California. The California Podiatric Medical Association is the ONLY organization working for you, to keep you practicing to the full extent of your training. The CPMA has fought and succeeded in retaining podiatry in MediCal, seeking full parity, seeking equal pay for equal work, establishing a DPM seat on California’s Industrial Medical Council (Workers’ Compensation) and more.

To further strengthen our voice in the California Legislature, CPMA works diligently to form partnerships with other organizations such as the California Medical Association, the California Board of Podiatric Medicine, the Western Division of the American Diabetes Association, and the California Senior Legislature.
