Physicians and other prescribers may apply for membership in the PBA's State Trooper Surgeons program.  With more than 3,100 prescribers affiliated, reasons for joining vary.  The longstanding relationship between law enforcement and the medical community is certainly a good one.  Joining to ensure the medical well-being of the 16,000 lives under the PBA umbrella is the best one.  

 

Membership entitles applicants to certain individual benefits, such as:

  • STATE TROOPER SURGEON CREDENTIALS AND VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION

  • PBA CARDS AND STICKERS

  • PREFERRED MEDICAL PROVIDER CERTIFICATE

  • CME OPPORTUNITIES

  • ACCESS TO ELITE FIREARMS SAFETY AND MARKSMANSHIP INSTRUCTION

  • SPECIAL AWARD NIGHTS FOR DOCTORS WHO HAVE SAVED LIVES

  • GROUP PBA INSURANCES

Member providers may choose to be included on the PBA's list of providers if they are able to accept patients or provide guidance.  Please contact us if you have questions about how our providers assist us in meeting our mission.

New credentials will be mailed each year upon membership renewal, although all members maintain the same STATE TROOPER SURGEON Shield that they were issued.

Dues Explanation:

 

NEW APPLICANTS

  • New Applicants joining from November 1, 2019 – August 31, 2020 pay $400 to join the PBA as State Trooper Surgeons. Approved New Members should expect to receive 2020 Credentials in 2 to 3 weeks.

  • ​​New Applicants who join from September 1, 2020 – October 31, 2020 pay $500 to receive 2020 Credentials and then are pre-paid for 2021 Credentials.  Applicants should expect to receive 2020 credentials about 2 weeks after application.  Applicants who join during this Special basically pay $100 for the remainder of 2020 and $400 regular dues for 2021, saving $300.  This 2-month “Special” is the only option offered that provides a pro-rated dues payment opportunity.

  • ​​New Applicants who join from November 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020 will be processed for 2021 membership, and, upon approval, should expect to receive 2020 credentials promptly.  2021 credentials will be sent to this group, as well, before February 1, 2021 - ALL FOR THE SAME $400 APPLICATION FEE.

 

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL

  • ​​​All members who joined the State Trooper Surgeons prior to September 1, 2020 will need to renew their membership for 2021.  Those who joined after Sept. 1, 2020 will wait to renew membership for the 2022 renewal period.

  • Annual dues for State Trooper Surgeons are $500, as of January 1, 2021.

  • Annual Renewal Dues remain at $400 through 2020.​ Current members may renew at the $400 rate if 2021 dues are paid prior to January 1, 2021.

  • Renewal dues after March 31st, 2021 will be $500, but forgo the Vehicle ID Placard until the following year.
