The Massachusetts Orthopaedic Association is the only statewide organization representing orthopaedic surgeons in the Commonwealth. We represent the surgeons interests in dealing with the socio-economic issues affecting their practices and their ability to care for their patients. More about MOA
Whether you are in private practice, hospital or academic employed, we are all first and foremost orthopaedic surgeons and your membership in the MOA is needed to continue Worker’s Compensation negotiations, curtailing unqualified scope expansion, positively impacting insurer policies and more.
As a voluntary organization, your dues dollars provide the support necessary to foster legislative relationships, regulatory representation and, advocacy in the private insurance arena. It is important for every surgeon to join with your colleagues to ensure the Society speaks with a loud, clear and strong voice on issues impacting our profession.
The MOA delivers value to its members at a low annual membership fee of $300.00 ($150.00 for first year members).
New in 2017, all dues paid members will receive a FREE one year subscription to:

(All orthopaedic surgeons in your practice must renew and there is a minimum of 4- member practice to qualify as a group for the discount billing.)
There is one comprehensive renewal notice for all members in your practice or institution, requiring only one check for membership dues to be issued and a 10% discount on total dues payment.
Remember: For first time, first year members, MOA dues are reduced by 50% (savings of $150.00) for the first year of membership.
The MOA is pleased to provide members with the Association's legal primer, “Principal Strategic Options for Orthopaedists to Remain Independent in Our Rapidly Evolving Health Care System.”
The detailed white paper reviews options for Massachusetts' orthopaedic surgeons to continue in independent, private practice. The review is provided by Attorney Michael Blau, Foley & Lardner and the paper, spearheaded and initiated by the Massachusetts Orthopaedic Association was supported in part by funding from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and has been released nationally by the AAOS in an effort to inform all orthopaedic surgeons throughout the country of viable practice options.
