Benefits of Becoming a Member

Discover why more than 600 top physicians have chosen CSIMS.


CSIMS is the RECOGNIZED voice of occupational medicine before the California Legislature and state agencies. Our two lobbyists have a combined 62 years workers’ compensation experience. CSIMS was instrumental in turning around what was going to be a 40% reduction into a 25% increase in the Medical-Legal Fee Schedule (MLFS). More recently, CSIMS led the initiative that caused the Department of Insurance to exclude cost containment fees from the definition of medical costs, greatly reducing the would-be effect of medical care on insurance premiums.


Keep on the cutting edge of evolving practice and legal developments, effective treatment guidelines, fee schedule revisions, and business opportunities.  CSIMS is approved by the Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC), California Medical Association, Board of Chiropractic Examiners and other organizations to grant continuing education credits to members at substantial discounts.


Do you wonder how much you’re “leaving on the table?” Are you confused about which codes to use or which fee schedule is applicable? Are you sick of being down coded?  Are you tired of the old slow pay routine? Daily, the CSIMS staff helps dozens of members like you. CSIMS can help you code correctly, reduce billing disputes, and, ultimately, IMPROVE YOUR CASH FLOW.
