Election of Members
Applications for membership are for the Medical Society of New Jersey as well as Atlantic County Medical Society. Your application may also be used for membership in the AMA. (AMA membership is encouraged, but optional). All physicians will receive a history questionnaire to complete to aid ACMS in conducting referrals from a computer. Physicians should also call ACMS with any change(s) of their base information.

Referrals for Patients
One of the primary functions of the ACMS office is to give physician referrals to the public. (These referrals are restricted to members of ACMC only).

Health and dental insurance, as well as Major Medical, Life, Retirement Plans, etc. are available to members of the county and state societies through plans sponsored by the Medical Society of New Jersey. These insurances offer excellent coverage at reasonable rates. Office employees of enrolled physicians may also be covered through some of these insurance programs.
