Membership

HIPAA-Compliant Zoom License

NWAPS has purchased an institutional membership from Zoom of a HIPAA-compliant telehealth connection for all of our seminars and events. We also are offering deeply discounted Zoom subscriptions for any of our members who would like to subscribe through NWAPS. Even if you already have a Zoom account, this offer will provide a substantially cheaper option for you and Zoom will reimburse you for any fees (prorated) that you may have already paid for an annual subscription.

Please note: This offer is for members of the Alliance, only. See our Membership page for more information on benefits of joining the Alliance.

Benefits of Purchasing Through NWAPS

Many clinicians currently use Zoom Pro, which costs about $15 per month (or $150 per year if you pay annually), or Zoom Basic, which is free. But Zoom Pro and Zoom Basic are not HIPAA-compliant, which leaves these therapists vulnerable to lawsuits and fines. During the first few months of the pandemic HIPAA regulations were loosened, so this was not a problem. However, in recent months, HIPAA regulations have come back into full effect and enforcement. Zoom’s HIPAA-compliant licenses (about $20 per month) are only sold in batches of at least 10, meaning that individual practitioners need to band with others to make this option affordable. The Alliance is offering our members access to a HIPAA-compliant Zoom license for the equivalent of $12 per month--a significant discount from commercially available options.

Your HIPAA-compliant Zoom license through NWAPS will grant you one (1) year of access to HIPAA-compliant Zoom services for a one-time annual fee of $144. Below is a breakdown of the different Zoom license options available to you.

To register for a HIPAA-compliant Zoom license through NWAPS, follow the instructions on this page. Please allow up to 24 hours for us to process your registration.
