As the only industry association that represents independent review organizations (IROs), NAIRO promotes the quality and integrity of the independent review process, and acts as a collective voice in advocating for our industry. NAIRO has three membership tiers: Full, Associate, and Affiliate. Full and Associate members must maintain URAC accreditation, with the opportunity to shape development of accreditation standards and influence policy. Affiliate members are firms wishing to track legislative and regulatory developments in the IRO industry, while enjoying many of the benefits of networking with other NAIRO members.

Here's a summary of our tiered membership benefits:

All members in good standing are listed on our Members page, and have the opportunity to participate in monthly member conference calls and the annual Symposium. Through NAIRO’s subscriptions to LexisNexis State Net, members receive updates on legislative and regulatory updates.
