Lock In 2017 AAFD Rates Now! AAFD Announces Dues Increases Phase In

If you have considered joining the AAFD or are already member, now is the time to act in order to lock in 2017 dues rates. After holding the line on dues rates since 2014, mounting expenses have compelled the AAFD Trustees to announce a dues increase to phase in over the next twelve months starting June 1, 2018. Higher membership dues will be used primarily to cover the AAFD’s increased labor costs and the just announced upgrade of the AAFD Member Management support platform.

The AAFD Introduces Short Term Medical Coverage for Its Members

Losing your health insurance can be scary, especially if you are on an individual Affordable Care Act plan and must wait until the next open enrollment period to find a new policy. Instead of crossing your fingers and hoping you won’t face any serious illnesses or injuries in the meantime, you might want to consider a short term medical insurance policy. At the AAFD, we have just partnered with SimplHealth to offer all of our members short term medical coverage as part of the AAFD Health Benefits suite of health care options.
