Physician Business Resources page
ISMA’s new Physician Business Resources page is continually being updated with information on sources of emergency and human resources funding for physician practices during the COVID-19 public health emergency. You’ll find explanations of terms and eligibility requirements for various state and federal programs and regulatory changes. Other key resources, such as for the CARES Act’s Paycheck protection Program, are linked in the Business Impact Resources section of our main COVID-19 Resources page.

Registry of ISMA members offering telemedicine services
Occasionally, ISMA receives calls from Hoosiers looking for a physician who offers telemedicine services. To serve them ISMA maintains a list of members who offer appointments through telemedicine, which is preferred as a way to continue seeing patients while protecting them, yourself and your staff against exposure to the novel coronavirus.

If you would like to be added to the list, please use our Member Input Tool to tell us your specialty and contact information, as well as how the COVID-19 quarantine is affecting your practice.
