CAEPS Offers Other Benefits
We partner with them, but the American Academy of Ophthalmology only handles FEDERAL issues, and the California Medical Association represents over 20 specialties.
CAEPS provides the unique insight to represent ophthalmology with dedicated Sacramento staff focused on our issues!
California paves the way for all 50 states. The rest of your career could be impacted by today’s legislation!
Without strong state-level representation, legislation could make your ability to practice more difficult or threaten patient safety.
“CAEPS works tirelessly to ensure we can practice ophthalmology here in California with minimal insurance company hassles and other red tape. I strongly recommend supporting its efforts by being a member.
David H. Aizuss, MD
2018-19 President, CMA
“I am a proud member of CAEPS, the only statewide group representing California ophthalmologists and our patients. Its strong public education and legislative advocacy help ensure our ability to provide the best possible quality patient care.”
Anne L. Coleman, MD, PhD
2019 President-Elect, AAO
“Although AAO and ASCRS represent us nationally, we depend on CAEPS’ advocacy for local issues, such as scope-of-practice and reimbursement policies. Every California ophthalmologist should belong because we need an effective, collective voice to protect our patients and our profession.”
David F. Chang, MD
Past President, ASCRS
“When our practice’s Medicare revenues were interrupted for months due to a bureaucratic error, CAEPS fixed the problem. It has always been a tireless advocate for ophthalmology and our patients in Sacramento, but it does so much more.”
Andrew Calman, MD, PhD
Past President, CAEPS
