Helping your patients live safely and independently at home drives everything that we do. That’s why we developed the instED® mobile integrated health solution, which leverages highly trained paramedics to deliver urgent medical care services to CCA members in the comfort of their own home.

Proven to improve health outcomes and member satisfaction, instED provides high-quality and compassionate care that reduces avoidable emergency department visits and fills the gap between primary care and emergency care—even for patients with the most complex care needs. With instED, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your patients are cared for by highly trained paramedics, and that you’ll be kept informed of the care they receive.

It’s easy to request a visit from instED for urgent medical care. And don’t forget: for CCA members, this service is covered.
