ACPA Approved Teams from Region IV (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Puerto Rico, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia) are up for renewal in 2018. All teams from the United States and Canada that have not been approved are welcome to apply for ACPA Team Approval. The application is due July 2, 2018.  Teams outside of the United States and Canada that are interested in being listed should email ACPA for more information.

There is a non-refundable initial application fee of US$250.00. If a team is approved, this fee will count as the team’s first year listing fee. There is an annual listing fee of US$175.00.

Please note that all ACPA Approved Teams must follow HIPAA compliance and remove all patient identifying information before submitting an application. Applications containing any Protected Health Information will not be reviewed and will be returned for redactions. If an application is returned a second time, an additional US$125.00 penalty fee will be due upon resubmission.
