Membership Information

As an active member of AAPAN you will be part of the only U.S. association providing a unified, integrated voice for payers, TPAs, networks and care management. We’ve helped our commercial/government health and workers’ compensation members navigate the continually shifting healthcare arena for more than 30 years.

Well respected as a leading industry advocate by state and federal legislators, regulators, and other advocacy groups, AAPAN leads important policy change. Recent examples include:

  • Provider contracting legislation and rules nationwide. 

  • Network access assignment policy.

  • Network adequacy rulemaking for comprehensive and specialty plans.

  • National stop-loss attachment point policy.

  • Workers’ compensation provider dispensing, including model NCOIL legislation.

AAPAN offers you a safe-harbor forum for collaborating with your industry colleagues on solutions that enhance our collective ability to profitably compete. Members receive:

  • Weekly Federal Health Policy Report.

  • Monthly AAPAN Pulse newsletter.

  • Early Warning communications on the hottest issues facing our industry.

  • Discounted Annual Forum registration and access to member-only events, such as the Annual Capitol Caucus. 

Planning is in place to enhance the AAPAN membership value proposition in 2017

  • A revised structure that consolidates decision making, facilitates more rapid response, strengthens communications and industry branding, and drives holistic understanding about how collaborative initiatives need to build on individual stakeholder needs.

  • A regionalized approach to build faster, more accurate awareness about challenges and opportunities for ensuring member business interests at the state and local levels.

  • Development of a Provider Council to facilitate better reciprocal understanding.

  • Alliance development with national and regional associations to increase our advocacy credibility and strength of voice – consumer protection, unions, trade groups, etc.
