Provider memberships are available to tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations that operate Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®). Organizations typically begin their membership in NPA as an Exploring PACE or Prospective Provider member and progress to a Provider membership as they become operational.  

Membership Benefits

Specialized and timely knowledge, information and tools will enhance your ability to operate a successful PACE program and proactively address federal regulatory challenges.

  • Policy Issues: The NPA newsletter, timely updates and online resources will keep you up to date on emerging issues, trends and federal regulations so you can proactively prepare to meet upcoming challenges. Because NPA monitors, dissects, and summarizes federal regulations of interest to your organization, you can focus your energies and resources on providing care rather than interpreting federal requirements. In addition, by collectively working together with other Provider members, complying with federal regulations becomes more cost-effective. 
  • Operational Resources: The Core Resource Set for PACE (CRSP) is a compendium of tools designed to assist PACE programs, developed from,operating PACE programs.  CRSP is available at no charge to Provider members. 
  • Benchmarking Data: NPA offers a variety of programs that will help you better understand the participant care and financial data of your program in the context of cross-site data analysis and benchmarking. 
  • Collective Projects: NPA organizes a range of collective projects that provide members with the ability to work with their peers in a cost-effective and organized approach to tackling issues such as HIPAA compliance and the Part D prescription drug benefit program.
  • Technical Assistance: The NPA professional staff is available to provide general technical assistance. In-depth technical assistance is available through NPA Technical Assistance Center (TAC) members. Fees for services from the TACs vary and are payable directly to the TAC.
  • Targeted Learning Experiences: Join with other Provider members to learn from experts in the field. The NPA Annual Conference, which is held in the fall, is the only event of its kind dedicated to the unique needs of organizations that are exploring, developing, operating, or expanding PACE programs. Other periodic events address timely issues, such as emerging federal regulations. Monthly teleconferences are targeted to various disciplines and feature practical information in an easily accessible format.
  • Peer-to-Peer Learning: A variety of discipline-specific list serves provides your staff with opportunities to address questions and discuss issues directly with their peers. Through the online NPA Membership Directory, you can identify members with operational programs similar to yours and can contact them to discuss specific and unique issues.
