Preserving the Practice of Urology in California Since 1986

PSA Screening Legislation in CA

CUA launched the effort for PSA Screening Legislation in 2017 resulting in AB 1520 - a bill that will save lives and help lessen healthcare disparities

#PeertoPeer review and approval of #steptherapy and #priorauthorization is crucial for the health of patients! #AB1880 #CALeg

Scores of urologists planning legislative meetings in Congress today on behalf of practices across the nation... "Don't raise your voice, improve your argument".. Desmond Tutu #auasummit22 @AmeriUrological

When programs like the #340B drug discount program do not function as intended or are abused, CA’s underserved and vulnerable patient communities can bear a disproportionate burden.

A quick cameo as the California delegation discusses #telehealth expansion before their #AUASummit22 congressional meetings. @auawest @Calurology

The #340B drug program is now the country's second largest federal prescription drug program, behind only #Medicare Part D. Despite the size of the program, there is little transparency to ensure that the CA patients who need it are benefiting.

With overwhelming, bipartisan support #AB347 passed the California Legislature and now @CAGovernor has signed #steptherapyreform into #CA law!

Great news for patients in #CA as #AB347 to reform #steptherapy insurance protocols is now law! TY @DrArambulaAD31 for your leadership and @CAGovernor for your signature!

#AB347 puts prescribing back in the hands of doctors and their patients without inappropriate interference from insurers. Please support #steptherapyreform in #California! @drarambulaAD31 @SenToniAtkins @ScottWilkCA

According to a recent study, Under H. R. 3, only 2 of the 16 medicines produced in California from venture partnerships would have come to market, an 88% reduction. Californians need access to lifesaving treatments and cure thanks @RepCardenas for putting patients first.
