Recognizing the value of partnerships, CAA has spearheaded the creation of the California Emergency Medical Services Coalition (CAEMS Coalition)
The CAEMS Coalition is a group of California first response and labor advocates leading the fight for increased Medi-Cal base rates for ambulance transports. As first responders on the front lines of emergency services, many of our coalition members are struggling to recruit and retain qualified emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics.
EMSC members seek to sound the alarm on the critical issue of Medi-Cal base rates, which now threatens the stability of California’s emergency and
non-emergency ambulance transport infrastructure, and to drive action.
