The mission of the California Urgent Care Association is to support the ongoing success of our membership through strong advocacy and education and to promote urgent care as a patient-oriented, accessible, and cost-effective sector of our healthcare system.

 

Urgent Care has grown to become an essential part of California’s healthcare delivery system. Until now, the state’s urgent care centers have been almost invisible to legislators, public administrators, and organized medicine. This under-representation comes at a cost as state legislators can pass laws and approve regulations and payers can set their own rules without hearing from us and being fully informed.

 

Legislative Advocacy

Sacramento needs to hear from urgent care providers. You can be certain that our payers and managed care organizations are discussing urgent care policies without us. Other states have enacted rules and regulations that are harmful to urgent care providers – such as requiring Certificates of Need for each new urgent care center or requiring all urgent care centers to accept Medicaid.

 

Payer Relations  

Without our unified voice, payers can enact unfair payment practices, leaving urgent care centers with few options. CalUCA can bring these polcies to light, oppose and help reform them. Our voice as a professional organizaton representing centers and providers throughout the state will be stronger than our individual voices.

 

Representation of the Urgent Care in Organized Medicine

CMA does not currently include the voice of urgent care medicine. CalUCA intends to represent our shared interests in the House of Medicine at state and local levels.

 

Networking

By our nature, urgent care providers are experimenters, innovators, and risk takers. CalUCA can help us learn from each other and share common problems and solutions.

 

Every UCAOA member in California is a member of CalUCA.  That’s helpful, because there is strength in numbers when dealing with elected officials and other decision makers. 

But it’s not enough.  We are seeking people who want to help us accomplish our goals by participating in our new organization. 

There are many ways to get involved in CalUCA, including:

  • Communications:   e-Newsletter, website, social media and action alerts
  • Networking and Membership:  help us connect with the California urgent care community
  • Legislation and Regulations: talk to your State Senator, Assemblyperson, or County Supervisor
  • Leadership: become a committee member, committee chair or run for the Board of Directors

If none of these suit you, please suggest another way you’d like to be invoved.
