- Regions choosing to use ACUHO-I as a service provider for their web site will pay fees negotiated in advance with ACUHO-I for the specific services requested.
Since ACUHO-I and a region would benefit from formal affiliation, we believe that affiliation should not be connected with dues. It is understood no out-of-pocket cost would be passed on to the Regions. In other words, there are no hidden costs.
