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, then a Premium membership is the right choice for you.

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 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.

Premium +ADL memberships provide a listing in the AdvoConnection Directory. (“+ADL” = plus AdvoConnection Directory Listing)  With directory listing comes some additional benefits such as access to the +ADL Discussion Forum, notification of media requests, and contact information for patients who have self-identified as needing an advocate.

free gifts for new members

members of the Alliance of Professional Health Advocates

Join Now!The cost for your first year of Premium membership is $289* (or $259 if you belong to one of our affiliate organizations). Renewals are less expensive.

(Cost is offset by the value of our free gifts to you.  Learn more about the free gifts, or compare memberships)

There is NO additional cost to be listed in the AdvoConnection Directory once you have met our directory requirements.

 There are two ways you can be an APHA Premium Member:

Premium + ADL Membership*

You are already in business and meet our criteria for being listed in the AdvoConnection Directory.
(ADL = AdvoConnection Directory Listed)

Join APHA as a Premium Member,
then add your directory listing (+ADL)

for no extra charge.

Premium Membership*

You are very close to being officially in business and lack only one or two of our requirements for being listed in the AdvoConnection Directory.

Join APHA as a Premium Member.
(Add your directory listing once you meet the requirements at no extra charge.)

*If you are already a PACE member of the Alliance, you will also be credited with any unspent PACE dues. (Example: if you have been a PACE member for 3 months, you will get a 75% credit of the total you paid for your PACE membership subtracted from your new Premium dues.)

Join Now!

*Not sure if you will be accepted to the AdvoConnection Directory?

Our criteria are simple, fair and important. We do not make exceptions.

However, our goal is to list as many people in the directory as possible. The more listed, the more help for patients and caregivers!

So, should you not quite be eligible for a directory listing, you are invited to join as a Premium member, which will provide you with access to all membership benefits, including insurance information, forms and contracts, and more.  We’ll support you as you acquire the pieces that are lacking, and then we’ll happily throw the switch to make sure you show up in the Directory, moving you up to Premium ADL, as soon as you qualify.

We want you to succeed!  And we’ll help you reach that goal.
