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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Provider Membership is an annual commitment with dues based upon the chosen membership level. Dues may be paid on a monthly basis or in a lump sum for a reduced amount. Benefits and costs associated with both the Elite and Supporting levels can be found below.

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.
