Why should I join MSDC?
MSDC advocates for physicians and their patients, most recently supporting legislation that would require all health plans to pay promptly and to use the same referral form and credentials application.
MSDC holds health plans accountable for actions that are anti-physician and anti-patient.
MSDC publishes the newsletter, MSDC Newsline, which includes timely news on medical society activities and DC-area health care information.
For more on what MSDC does for DC-area physicians, go to Join MSDC.
