Message from the President
CSIMS is pleased to announce its sponsorship of AB 1832. As many of you already know this an urgency bill introduced to help resolve the increasing difficulty in obtaining QME evaluations. The number of QMEs has been decreasing steadily since 2006 and the fee schedule is now a primary factor in QMEs leaving the system.
SB 1832 will increase QME fees 50% across the board, catching the fee schedule up with inflation. Further it provides a mandatory mechanism for increasing fees in the future to keep pace with inflation.
CSIMS board member Gabor Vari was instrumental in helping to propose this legislation and CSIMS’ lobbyist Dean Florez was indispensable in finding legislative backers.
This is the new CSIMS, proactive and working for its members and their patients.
We want to address utilization review process, invalid MPNs, and PPO discounts in the next year.
To do that effectively we need you to join!
If you are a member rejoin! If you are not a member then join and help us advocate for you. Please come to our annual meeting October 11th to the 13th at the Westin hotel Gaslamp district in San Diego. Dues are $595 for a full year and the meeting is $295 for members. The annual conference will provide 12 hours of both CME and QME credit.

Our new phone number is 949-328-1533
