Representing Health Care's Front Line Providers

Founded in 1948, the California Ambulance Association (CAA) represents the interests of emergency and non-emergency ambulance service providers serving nearly every county of the state of California.

As healthcare’s first responders, the Association is dedicated to assuring the delivery of excellent pre- hospital care to the people of California by promoting recognized industry best practices.

Fund First Responders

Decades of below cost Medi-Cal reimbursement, combined with Medi-Cal expansion, is crippling our ability to recruit and retain qualified emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics. Unfortunately, this issue  threatens to undermine the stability of California’s emergency and non-emergency ambulance transport infrastructure. To address our retention and recruitment issues, ambulance providers need a Medi-Cal increase that ensures a sustainable living wage for caregivers, now and into the future.
