Our advocacy efforts have brought:

  • Tort reforms that have resulted in malpractice insurance premiums lower than those of almost three-fourths of the other states
  • Enhanced Medicare payments to Alaska physicians
  • An Alaska Patient Bill of Rights, Physician Joint Negotiations and Prompt Pay laws


In addition to the Alaska Medical Directory, ASMA publishes Alaska Medicine, an annual magazine, and Heartbeat, a bimonthly newsletter. These publications currently are not available online. For advertising information, click here.
