Member desires to subscribe to and participate in the Advantage MSO program under the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Agreement NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises contained herein and for other good and valuable consideration, the Parties agree as follows: 1. Membership Benefits. Member hereby subscribes to Advantage MSO, and is granted access to Advantage MSO’s Preferred Vendor program, pursuant to which Member may obtain Services from Preferred Vendors on a preferred pricing or discounted basis negotiated by Advantage MSO. Membership benefits are available only while Member’s subscription is active and Member’s account is in good standing. In the event that Member’s subscription becomes inactive or Member’s account is in default, or Member otherwise ceases to be an Advantage MSO Member in good standing, Advantage MSO will notify its Preferred Vendors of that change in status, at which time the preferred pricing shall no longer be valid and Preferred Vendors shall revert to standard pricing for all Services provided to Member effective as of the date of Preferred Vendor’s receipt of such notice. 2. Subscription Fee. In consideration of membership in Advantage MSO, Member will pay Advantage MSO an annual subscription fee in the amount of $295 per individual physician, group practice entity, or other company or entity. Affiliated entities – defined as a person or entity who directly or through one or more intermediaries controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with a Member in good standing, may subscribe by paying Advantage MSO a reduced annual subscription fee in the amount of $99, provided that such discount will not apply to physician-subscribers with interests in outside mega-centers. Group practice entities may subscribe by paying one subscription fee per practice regardless of number of physicians. All subscription fees are payable in advance by credit or debit card. Member may obtain a full refund of its initial subscription fee for any reason within the first 30 days of membership by written notice. All refunds must be requested in writing and directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Such renewal payment will take place on or about Member’s annual renewal date, and Member’s subscription will continue, and Member’s payment method will be charged the annual subscription fee until Member cancels its subscription.
