The information provided at the Public Policy Meetings is unlike anything else you can get anywhere. The insight provided by [Alliance staff] are irreplaceable. You just don’t get that level of detail anywhere else.

Lynn Madden, President and CEO, APT Foundation

The Alliance has been instrumental in helping nonprofits have a unified voice. And for us specifically, the recent NEMT switch in provider has been almost catastrophic for our populations.

I also think [they] understand the challenges related to the constraints on Medicaid billing and auditing processes and have done good advocacy around that. We feel supported.
