When you contact our office to plan a CME event, we offer you two options for paying for the course.
In the first plan, the CME office assumes all financial risk, earns all potential revenue, and absorbs any loss from the course. In return, you agree to follow certain guidelines that are outlined in our course pricing document.
In the second plan, your department assumes the financial risk and potential revenue from the event. If you choose this option, our office charges a fee of 20 percent of revenue with a minimum of $7,500.
