ISMA provides a variety of resources for physicians. Click on the tabs above to learn more.
Support:Two licensed clinical social workers on our staff administer the Physician Assistance Program, which assists physicians with consultation, screening, referral and case management related to alcohol, drug use and mental health disorders and physical illnesses. Our Doctor Your Spirit web pages contain articles and links to podcasts, assessments and other aids for physicians facing challenges in the areas of burnout, wellness and civility.
Discounts. A partnership with Office Depot provides discounts of 5 to 55 percent on office supply items and up to 30 percent on technology solutions. And, the Indiana Drug Card will provide you and your patients with savings of up to 75 percent on prescription medications at more than 68,000 pharmacies across the country.
Insurance. ISMA-sponsored medical and dental insurance plans are specifically designed for ISMA members and their spouses, to provide better-than-market benefits at an affordable cost for all.
Recognition and financial aid. Members may nominate candidates for two annual awards, one for a physician committed to increasing awareness of domestic violence in Indiana and one for a non-physician who has contributed to the health and welfare of Hoosier patients. We also sponsor an award given each year to a student leader at Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine and are working on providing scholarships both there and at Indiana University School of Medicine.
News and information. Our monthly ISMA Reports and twice-monthly e-Reports keep members up-to-date on news, trends and laws important to medical practice in Indiana. When the Indiana General Assembly is in session, the weekly Legislative News tracks bills that affect physicians and reports on what ISMA's Government Relations staff is doing to make sure Indiana remains a favorable place to practice.
