ACCESS FEE – OPERATING COSTS

Annual Service Charge

Due to increased operating and running costs, reduced interest income and the reluctance of Government to increase the Stoma Appliance Scheme (SAS) Access Fee and/or increase Associations commission on appliances supplied, the Gold Coast Ostomy Association regrets to advise that from 1st of July 2020, an annual Service Charge of $10 will be charged to all GCOA members over and above the existing SAS Access Fee. Members should be aware that Associations have not had a monetary increase for at least five years.
