Application Review Fees

AAFP CME Credit System application review fees are for review services rendered and are non-refundable or transferable. The review process begins once the review fee is paid in full.


Nonprofit Organizations

Nonprofit CME Provider organizations that have a 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(6) status under the IRS, or are bona fide federal, state, or local governmental entities or agencies qualify for nonprofit review fees. To qualify, a copy of the determination letter from the IRS must accompany the first CME application. The AAFP will keep the letter on file for future reference.


Live

  • Live activity review fees are based on the number of times the same activity is offered within a one year period, beginning with the first date listed on the application.

A re-review fee does not apply in the event of:

  • A change to the begin or end date of the activity
