Dues Structure

HBMA Membership Is Your Membership!

It’s a personal distinction and shows that you’re serious about your commitment as a healthcare billing and management professional. When you become an HBMA member, you have access to the best information, services, and personal relationships that the profession has to offer.

Beginning January 1, 2017, all memberships will run on an annual basis, beginning the first of the year and ending on December 31st. Current members will pay a prorated amount for 2017 based on their renewal date in 2017.
