Each year the Commission on Approval of Teams reviews applications from one region. Teams that apply outside of their region and teams that were denied approval may apply during the current cycle. Teams that are approved off cycle will be required to reapply when their region is up for review – which could be in fewer than 5 years.
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 – pay your listing fee online.
Applications containing Protected Health Information may be charged a US$125.00 penalty fee. Please see the below question for details.
All ACPA Approved Teams are required to follow HIPAA compliance. It is the team’s responsibility to 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.
