PCMS MEMBER BENEFITS

 

Professional Liability Insurance - COPIC will give an average discount of 10% for physicians who are members of the Pueblo County Medical Society (PCMS) and the Colorado Medical Society (CMS) and who attend risk management courses.

Professional Peer Reviiew:  The Peer Review Committee investigates grievances made against members of PCMS.  the purpose of this service is to remove, whenever possible, the potential for such grievances to progress to the state grievance venue or the Colorado  Board of Medical Review.
