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

Responsive to Members

CUA acts as a "watch-dog" vigilantly watching out against attacks on our our freedom to practice and fighting burdensome regulations.

CUA has teamed up with Zero Prostate Cancer to support prostate cancer awareness and patient care.

November is Urological Health Month

Use our poster to convey a positive message of appreciation for Urologists and staff during the month of November.

The Power of U

Volunteer driven and led, the CUA works actively on behalf of its Members!

Greater transparency in the #340B Drug Pricing Program can help ensure it benefits California's uninsured and underinsured patients most, rather than out of state contract pharmacies.

#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!
