    Data Entry Fee
    An additional $195 data entry fee is applied to the review fee for applications that are not submitted online. The data entry fee does not apply if you submit an application online.

    Rush Fees
    You have the option to rush your CME credit application and receive a review decision faster than the standard 20 business days. The Credit System reserves the right to determine whether the application qualifies for the rush option. A request for a rush may be denied if the reviewer has determined that additional information is required in order to finalize the review.

    The AAFP reserves the right to deny a rush request for any reason at any time. Rush review fees are in addition to the regular review fee.

    • Standard Rush:  Standard rush reviews will be completed in 3-5 business days. The rush fee is $595.
    • Same-Day Rush: Same-day rush service is available for $1,995 and is subject to availability.

    Re-review of Applications

    A $125 re-review fee will be charged for all applications that are revised after the official AAFP CME credit determination letter has been sent to the CME provider.

    Re-review fee will be applied if:

    • The program content changes
    • The CME provider seeks to change the number of approved CME credits

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

    • A change to the start or end date of the activity
    • Speaker or faculty changes

    You can request a rush at the time of application submission on the Final Submission page. If you have already paid for your application and would like to request a rush, please email us at cmecredit@aafp.org. For re-reviews, please email the Credit System at cmecredit@aafp.org
