NICA is now a 501(c)(6) nonprofit trade association. Effective immediately, all membership benefits will be delivered through this new structure. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions. Thank you for your support!
Welcome, Infusion Providers!
First and foremost, thank you for your dedication to caring for patients! We admire and appreciate your efforts to improve the quality of life and health outcomes among your patients.
Our efforts are focused on delivery channel sustainability and expansion, buy-and-bill protection, maintaining net positive reimbursement, improving treatment adherence, and promoting patient safety and care quality. Our goal is to help decision makers understand the value of receiving provider-administered medications in non-hospital care settings and ensure that the community-based infusion center remains a safe, more efficient, and more cost-effective alternative to hospital care settings.
We support policies that improve drug affordability for beneficiaries, increase price transparency, reduce disparities in quality of care and safety across care settings, and enable care delivery in the highest-quality, lowest-cost care setting.
Partnership is an annual commitment made on a calendar year basis with dues based upon the chosen partnership level. Dues may be paid on an annual or monthly basis.

PROVIDER MEMBER TESTIMONIALS
“Thank you for everything you’re doing! NICA is my lifeline! We just opened our center in March during COVID peak and NICA team has saved me more times than I can count!”
-Jay C. Patel, Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Greenhill Infusion Solutions
“I just want to thank you for your tremendous efforts on behalf of centers like myself, who try to be ‘in the weeds’ with our patients. Organizations like yours and your efforts help us to do that.”
-Salvatore Napoli, MD
Neurology Center of New England, PC
“Prior to joining NICA, Palmetto Infusion didn’t feel like it had a voice. We are trusting NICA with getting the message out about the [benefits of] in-office infusion centers so we can do what we do best, which is care for our patients!”
-Gary Cooper, MHA
Chairman and Co-Founder, Palmetto Infusion Services
“FloMed Infusion has been a member of NICA since its founding in 2020. The value that members derive range from a patients ease of locating centers in local areas throughout the country, coupled with the backing and support of a larger industry network which fights for providers operations and policies to be more effective and efficient. With respect to payers, NICA has been an invaluable resource in helping manage claim denials from payers that make it difficult for a mid-sized provider to address. FloMed Infusion looks forward to our continued support of NICA, the industry leading trade association.”
-Danny Winter, CFO/COO
FloMed Infusion Services
“The amazing team of well-versed advocates at NICA have protected my infusion center from multiple outside threats throughout the years. Our membership is priceless.”

WHO IS NICA?
National Infusion Center (NICA) is a nonprofit trade association and the nation’s voice for non-hospital, community-based infusion providers that offer a safe, more affordable alternative to hospital care settings for provider-administered medications.
Since 2010, NICA has overcome countless barriers to care, access obstacles, and threats to our nation’s non-hospital, community-based delivery channel for provider-administered medications. The NICA team was instrumental in reversing several immediate threats in recent years that would have carried profound economic implications and significantly reduced access to care.
NICA is dedicated to ensuring that the nation’s infusion centers remain a safe, more efficient, and more cost-effective alternative to hospital settings for consistent, high-quality care.
