Enrollment Policy Massachusetts:

First time enrollees whose peer review is due in the current year will be billed the Service & Evaluation Fee and current year's Annual Fee. New firms whose reviews fall after the current year will be billed for the current annual fee only.

Please Note: Firms that are dropped from the program between reviews due to non-payment will be required to pay a reinstatement fee which is the Annual Fees for the interim years.

Membership in the Societies are encouraged and will reduce the cost of your Annual Fee.
