Join APHA as a Premium Member
If you are already working as a patient advocate, or you have already committed yourself to pursuing advocacy as a new career and want to launch your practice soon, then a Premium membership is the right choice for you.
(Not ready yet? A PACE membership might serve your needs.)
Premium memberships are for those who are getting ready to launch their practices, and need access to liability insurance, or legal contracts, or other details.
Premium members benefit from almost the entire list of resources available to APHA members, except they are not yet listed in the AdvoConnection Directory, and do not have access to areas reserved for directory members. (Find the differences, what can and cannot be accessed here.)
Once you’ve committed to creating your own practice, this is the membership to choose!
With an APHA Premium Membership, you can:
- Find resources for business planning, health advocate liability insurance, business formation, marketing, client services, legal concepts, and more.
- Network with others through the APHA Connect! Discussion Forum: from experienced advocates who are already working with patient-clients, to those who are just thinking about the possibility, to those who have begun putting their practices together.
- Be alerted FIRST when new opportunities are offered from outside groups and vendors.
- Participate in Expert Teleconferences and Webinars on a variety of topics that let you ask questions of experts in the field.
- Join Special Interest Groups like Medical Billing and Claims, Physicians as Advocates, Lawyers as Advocates and others.
- Receive discounts and special offers from APHA partners.
- Enjoy free and discounted advocacy courses at the PracticeUP!Online education website.
- Apply for a listing in the AdvoConnection Directory as soon as you are ready.
- Receive tips and updates about advocacy business practices, the career itself, and the APHA site through our weekly membership newsletter.
