The California Medical Association is no wallflower in the conversation about the state’s health reform future. A power in the halls of the Legislature for decades, the CMA certainly doesn’t plan to sit out the important discussions now taking place in Sacramento about the shape of Obamacare in California.

Without hesitation, he pointed to “change” as the organization’s biggest issue. How does the organization help its members grapple with “the rapidity of change that is coming at physicians, and helping them through the most significant change in decades – at least since Medicare.”
