The ISMA now has two ways you can pay less on membership dues: a discount for groups or a discount for prepayment. If you qualified for one of these options in 2014, you need not take any action at this time. You will receive a verification in August. However, if you failed to qualify in time last year or only recently decided to take one of the options, now is the time to act.
The two discount options work this way:
If you pay dues in advance for multiple years by Jan. 15, 2015, you can earn up to a 30 percent discount on your ISMA membership. See the graph below.
For groups of 5 to 49 physicians, the discount varies based on the group’s percentage of participation, as follows:
|100% group participation
|90% group participation
|80% group participation
|75% group participation
However, please note that these discounts may not apply to component county and district medical societies, which may or may not have their own discounts. The following county societies are participating (county dues amounts in parenthesis):
Please see a “Frequently Asked Questions” document on the discounts online on the ISMA website. If you still have questions, call the ISMA’s Vicki Riley, membership services coordinator, at (800) 257-4762 or (317) 261-2060.
