As the premier organization for independent* patient / health advocacy and care management professionals in the United States, Canada, and other countries around the world, APHA provides the support and resources you need to help you get started, then grow and thrive.
Business and client services support include diagnostic, care, and treatment resources, plus legal, insurance, financial, contracts, marketing, technology and networking with hundreds of care professionals.
Whether you have been in practice for many years, or you’re just getting started and wish to learn more about independent* professional patient advocacy, navigation or care management as a career, we will welcome you as a member of The Alliance of Professional Health Advocates.
APHA members are Independent* Care Management Professionals:
Health and Patient Advocates • Patient Navigators • Case and Care Managers • Care Coordinators • Medical Bill Reviewers • Health Insurance Advisors • Disability Advisors • Midwives and Doulas • Elder Care Professionals • Guardians or Conservators • Nursing Home Advisors • Health and Fitness Coaches • Legal Assistance for Patients • … and many more
Independent advocates do not work for hospitals, insurance companies, or other organizations with vested interests in profiting from patient care. This is called the Allegiance Factor. Independent advocates’ only allegiance is to clients and their families.
