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

CUA Annual Meeting 2021
@ WSAUA Meeting, Indian Wells, CA, October 31 - Nov. 4

  • All urologists & health pros invited
  • Date & Time tbd

We commend @RepKatiePorter for raising concerns about the Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALY) methodology. We know the QALY discriminates against Californians with disabilities, patients with cancer or a rare disease, and seniors. Federal policymakers must avoid ICER and the QALY.

Thank you Assemblymember Marc Levine @MarcLevine for introducing HR56 proclaiming September 2021 as Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in California.

“Unfortunately, sometimes that critical medication selection is taken away from physicians by insurance companies that want patients to try other medications first” #steptherapy #AB347 @CalMatters https://bit.ly/3quDS2y

California lawmakers should address health disparities, stem rise in prostate cancer https://pajaronian.com/california-lawmakers-should-address-health-disparities-stem-rise-in-prostate-cancer/ via @pajaronian support #AB1520 @bretanmd

Success: Assembly Bill 1520 passes Health Committee Hearing in 10 to 0 vote. Our first hurdle to no cost PSA Screening in Calif. Thank you to bill sponsors Assemblymember Marc Levine @AsmMarcLevine and Sen. Ben Allen @senatorbenallen and all who helped with your support.

Take Action today on PSA Screening in California! Support Assembly Bill 1520
This bill will save lives and help lessen healthcare disparities! Take Action Link: https://p2a.co/wllx3og

There are several bipartisan federal policy proposals, like #HR4597 and #HR6179, cosponsored by CA representatives, that promote increased use of #biosimilars to benefit patients, providers, and budgets while preserving physician and patient choice.

Excellent panel at @SDChamber today discussing health care cost-savings possibilities like #biosimilars. CA has the potential to save hundreds of millions of dollars annually by increasing access to biosimilar medicines in the state.
