This announcement is to provide advance notice to CCVS customers of the Arkansas State Medical Board's intention to proceed with implementing the change in payment options previously discussed. Implementation is expected within the next several weeks once the ASMB's Information Technology department completes their internal processes. Methods and types of payment are authorized by the Arkansas State Medical Board.
This change will allow customers to pay for their profiles at the time of order via a CREDIT CARD ONLY payment type similar to purchasing items from online sources. This enhancement will prevent the necessity for cancellations due to non-payment or lack of funds availability, and subsequently from having to reorder the profiles, delaying credentialing for the providers and organizations. The credit card that is entered at the time of ordering will have to have the funds available at that time for the order to post and the CCVS to begin working. The customer may determine which credit card to enter for each order as the ASMB/CCVS will no longer store credit card information. The credit cards that will be accepted are Visa, MasterCard and Discover. It is possible we will also add American Express at some point. It is important that customers understand that the ASMB will no longer accept electronic funds transfers for order payments once this enhancement goes live. Please make the appropriate changes in your ordering process.
