Membership in the National PACE Association

Membership in the National PACE Association (NPA) connects you to a growing number of leaders who share a vision and dedication to providing innovative care for frail older adults, whether you represent a fully operational Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®), a health care services provider operating with capitated payments, an organization that supports the underlying principles of PACE, or an organization exploring, evaluating, or pursuing PACE development. Join NPA today and become part of the only national association devoted to PACE and its comprehensive approach to care.

Memberships for PACE and Health Care Services Programs

NPA offers a seamless array of membership levels that meet the varied and changing needs of an organization as it progresses from consideration of the PACE model of care to ongoing, full operational status.

  • Exploring PACE Membership: This membership will assist you in assessing whether PACE development is the right strategic decision for your organization, both today and in the future.
  • Prospective Provider Membership: Once you have made the decision to pursue PACE development, a Prospective Provider membership will assist you in developing a PACE program and completing the PACE Provider application.
  • Provider Membership: Fully operational PACE programs face ongoing challenges from both an operational perspective and in complying with ever-changing regulatory requirements. A Provider membership offers targeted services to assist you in improving your operations and proactively identifying and complying with federal regulations that uniquely impact PACE programs.
  • Capitated Provider Membership: This membership provides targeted services to health care providers operating with capitated payments to assist them in operating a successful program.

TAC Membership

TAC membership provides Technical Assistance Centers (TACs) with knowledge, information and tools they can use in providing expertise and guidance to organizations that are exploring, developing, operating, or expanding PACE programs. 

Associate Membership

Organizations that do not meet the qualifications for one of the memberships listed above but share a vision and dedication to providing innovative care for older adults benefit from an Associate membership by keeping abreast of emerging trends and issues impacting PACE.

Individual Membership

This membership is for individuals who are not employed (or self-employed) by entities that otherwise would qualify for NPA membership but who have an interest in the PACE model of care. Individual members are not voting members, but they qualify for the benefits of access to official NPA publications and other documents and access to NPA conferences. If you are interested in joining as an individual member, please contact Monica Price.

Due to the pandemic, NPA held a virtual annual conference in 2020. During the online business meeting, chairs of the NPA Education, Nominating, Primary Care, Public Policy, Quality, and Clinical and Operational Data Analysis committees provided updates on their activities over the past year. In addition, the NPA president and CEO gave a comprehensive overview of the state of PACE, and the treasurer presented a report on the financial position of the association. If you missed the meeting, a livestream recording is available.
