2018 Partial Practice Status information:

If you work (on average) 16 hours per week (2 days) or less in “compensated optometry-related activities” you are eligible for Partial Practice status with both NHOA and AOA, and your 2018 dues are 60% ($987.00).  You have the same payment options (credit card or check, annual, quarterly or monthly payments) as those who pay full dues.  You must request Partial Practice  status by checking the box on the Response Page (see the link above), certifying that your compensated optometry-related activities average less than 16 hours per week.  You must re-certify every year.

“Compensated optometry related activities” includes not only patient care, but also practice administration, teaching, or any other paid activity related to optometry.  If you are in doubt, call the NHOA office to discuss your status.

 

2017 Retired Member Status Information:

If you retire during 2018 (or plan to) please do not wait until after you have retired to contact the NHOA office and let us know!  We need to start processing your status change as soon as possible.
