National Association of Healthcare Advocacy Consultants

The Mission of this Association

The National Association of Healthcare Advocacy Consultants is a non-profit healthcare advocacy organization dedicated to empowering advocates and consumers to navigate our healthcare system effectively and facilitate informed decisions around high quality, timely, safe and affordable care.
  • We promote rigorous standards for the practice of advocacy including ethical considerations and codes of conduct when providing medical decision-making support;
  • We educate consumers and healthcare professionals on research and current trends in patient-centered navigation, advocacy and decision-making support;
  • We partner with individual advocates and other grassroots organizations to collaborate on patient-centered reforms that maximize use of the healthcare system, protect consumer choice and improve access to high quality, affordable care.

We welcome as members everyone who is interested in the field, either as a professional or an interested consumer.  We have several levels of membership available.

New members are required to read and agree to the NAHAC Code of Ethics.
