Help for Navigating COVID-19
Throughout COVID-19, OSMA has provided supports to help Ohio physicians navigate ever-changing policies, updates on testing guidance, PPE purchasing, free webinars, patient communication resources, a series of physician well-being seminars, and more. As COVID-19 continues into 2021, we will remain committed to offering up-to-date guidance, information and tools to help you care for your patients and practice.
Resources to Run Your Healthcare Business
From large hospitals to physician groups to independent practices, the business of healthcare is constantly evolving. Being part of OSMA means your practice will get up-to-date news and resources to help your practice manage insurance billings, telehealth, regulatory policies, employment and more—efficiently and effectively.
Professional Development for All Stages of Your Career
Collaborating with other physicians has become increasingly important in the time of COVID-19. OSMA offers continuing education and networking opportunities to members in a variety of ways—from virtual webinars and networking to in-person trainings and symposiums in the future. The topics covered range from the latest healthcare innovations, business practices, physician well-being, specialty practice groups and mentor opportunities for residents and new physicians.
Legislative Advocacy & Regulatory Actions Impacting Your Practice
As healthcare is adapting to the new realities of COVID-19, it is essential for physicians to have a strong voice at the table as legislation and regulations impacting the practice of medicine are considered at the state and federal level. Being a member of OSMA means you help set advocacy priorities and that Ohio physicians continue to have a strong, unified voice with the Ohio Legislature, Medical Board of Ohio and Ohio’s congressional delegation.
Cost Savings through Vendor Partnerships & Group Purchasing
There is power in numbers. And when it comes to managing a healthcare practice, those numbers can translate to cost savings. OSMA offers a number of group purchasing and vendor partnerships to members, helping you save money on employee health insurance plans, workers comp, liability insurance, PPE, medical supplies and more.
The OSMA Insurance Agency is also here to provide the best possible group health care coverage to your employees. Whether you have a group of two or more, our goal is to offer flexible affordable health plans that make world-class healthcare attainable for your practice. The OSMA Health Benefits Plan (HBP) is a group health care plan developed for Ohio physician practices as innovative alternative.
