About the Annual Fee
Beginning in 2013, the price of ASC X12 Work Products covers the use of the product for one year. Continued use of the Product requires renewal via an annual fee of 20% of the posted purchase price for members or non-members, depending on your membership status at the time of renewal. An invoice will be emailed approximately 60 days before the annual fee is due.
If updates are necessary because of modifications to the Product, there is no charge for such updates. The initial purchase cost provides the buyer the right to updates to use the Product for one year. In successive years, an annual fee extends the right to updates to use the product. This fee is calculated based on the entity's current membership status. Members pay 20% of the initial purchase price for members at the time of the extension. Non-members pay 20% of the initial purchase price for non-members at the time of the extension. The fee is not simply to receive updates, if the Product, or derivatives built based on the Product, are being executed as part of any organizational function, the annual fee must be paid every year.
