Join MSMS and WCMS- We Have Your Back!
Join more than 15,000 physicians in all specialties and all practice settings who are members of the Michigan State Medical Society with nearly 1,000 who are local to Washtenaw County Medical Society. Experience the value of banding together with one strong voice for the profession and our patients. Physician leaders and expert staff are on duty every day to watch out for you with private and government payers, legislators, and the bureaucracy. We work with you to smooth out problems in reimbursement processes, support increased access to care, and oppose inappropriate scope of practice expansion.
You can get involved in the MSMS and/or the WCMS. Take on a leadership role, or simply financially support our efforts with your dues payment. Our organizations have worked for over 150 years to build and preserve the profession of medicine and we are here to do the same for generations to com.
Did you know that your dues can be up to 88 percent tax deductible? Dues may be tax deductible as charitable contributions for Federal income tax purposes, as ordinary and necessary business expenses. We estimate that 12% of your 2018 dues will be nondeductible as this portion is allocable to lobbying as defined by law.
If you pay membership dues prior to December 31, 2017, you may deduct up to 88% of that as a business expense.
