Regarding AMA Membership

We urge all of our members to support the AMA, and ask that you pay your AMA dues through the Nassau County Medical Society.* This gives us an accurate record of your professional affiliations.

* We also receive commissions for the service we perform in billing for the AMA, and cash awards for increases in AMA membership. Those who pay AMA dues directly to Chicago are not counted as our members for these purposes. Paying your AMA dues through the county helps keep your state and local dues from increasing.

If you want to pay AMA dues separately for cash flow purposes, be assured that you can still pay local and national dues at different dates and we will accommodate you. As long as your AMA dues reach the county society by mid-February and/or MSSNY by the beginning of March, your AMA benefits will not be jeopardized.

Thank you.

If you are retired or over 65...

Please note the following AMA membership options and include the appropriate dues amount in your check (or a request for dues exempt membership):

Fully retired, over age 65 - dues exempt No dues
Fully retired, under age 65 $84
Working 1 to 20 hours per week to age 65 $210
Working 21 hours or more per week $420

Members who are retired and dues exempt do not receive AMA publications as a membership benefit. Those under 65 who are retired and pay $84 per year receive AMNews with membership.

Members in either category for retirees may subscribe to AMA publications at half the regular rates.

PLEASE NOTE: You must already be an AMA member in order to qualify for dues-exempt membership.

* Under federal tax law, the portion of dues paid to an association, which is attributable to lobbying by that association is non-deductible.

Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY)- the portion of the dues paid to MSSNY for the year 2011 that cannot be deducted as a business expense for federal income tax purposes is 40%.

American Medical Association (AMA) The portion of the dues paid to the AMA for the year 2008 that cannot be deducted as a business expense for federal income tax purposes is 50%.

Finally, no portion of any AMPAC, MSSNYPAC or Physicians Fund dues is deductible as a business expense or as a charitable contribution.
