With that figure expected to grow by the end of the 2014 open enrollment period, it is critical that physicians and their staff know what to expect. To help answer some of the more common questions, the California Medical Association (CMA) offers this third tip sheet to help physicians survive the third month of Covered California. Additionally, CMA has just published a document physicians can provide to their patients to address the most common patient questions. The document is available free for members in CMA's exchange resource center at www.cmanet.org/exchange. If you would like patient materials delivered to your office or patient training for your office staff, please fill out a Covered CA Information Request form and fax or email it back to OCMA.
