There is a $350 annual membership fee to participate in the HeartSmart Associates Program. We ask that you pay the fee prior to applying. Many doctors ask us why we charge this fee up front. Simply put, we'd like to know that your intent is to become a member and we ask for this small financial commitment to process your membership. Once you have paid your annual fee, you will be directed to an online application to fill out and submit for processing. Thank you for your interest in joining the HeartSmart Associates Program.
