Join the NCCRA

Membership Benefits


NCCRA promotes the cardiovascular and pulmonary profession. Obtaining/retaining reimbursement will provide a more stable future for all cardiac and pulmonary professionals.  NCCRA will continue to work with congressmen and congresswomen to promote Medicare reimbursement for our services.


NCCRA offers credibility and visibility for both programs and practitioners.  Messages for and about NCCRA programs and practitioners carry more weight than if they are perceived to be generated locally.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

How long does my membership last?

Starting in 2023, we are implementing a rolling 12-month membership term. In other words, your membership will be active for 365 days from the date of purchase. You will receive an email renewal reminder 7 days prior to your expiration date.

Can I pay for my membership by check?

Yes. During the online checkout process, choose the “Pay by Check” option. Then send your check payment to:

P.O. Box 6054
Hickory, NC 28603.

If your organization will be paying for multiple memberships with one check, please make sure that each member (individually) completes the online process, and that you include a list of the persons included with your check payment.

Once your check payment is received, your online membership account(s) will be fully activated.
