CUA in Action

  • Actively Working for Members
    CUA provides urologists with representation on state and national levels. On a state level, CUA acts as a "watch-dog" vigilantly watching out against attacks on our our freedom to practice and fighting burdensome regulations.
  • Protecting Present and Future
    The major objectives and purposes of the CUA are to preserve and protect present and future urological care for the people of California by providing care and keeping up with medical development, implementation and economic support of new technology.
  • Available to Serve Members
    The CUA offers 'hotline' assistance to members with difficulties including insurance billings, or reimbursement infractions. The total membership is currently 475, representing approximately 52% of the State's board certified urologists.
  • Representing California Urologists Since 1986
    The CUA is the largest state urological, non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving patient access and reimbursement for evolving therapies, therapeutic agents, and devices through policy and legislative reform.
