Be Sure Your Invoice is Legitimate!
Annual Accreditation Fee Due July 1

You may pay the annual fee by check, ACH or the View and Pay Invoice option in the email. (Credit cards are not accepted.) Programs are encouraged to pay by ACH, and the CoAEMSP is moving toward eventually requiring all payments to be made via ACH.

The fee is due July 1, 2019. If you have questions about the invoice or other accounting related items, please contact Heather Parker ( heather@coaemp.org, 214-703-8445, x116).

Don't Get Fooled by a Scam Invoice

The CoAEMSP has been alerted that scam invoices have been received with the address of coaemsp.org. These emails request that you follow a link to make your payment. All invoices from the CoAEMSP are in the form of attachments, NOT hyperlinks, and you will never be asked for sensitive information.

If you receive suspicious looking email, contact the CoAEMSP directly (do NOT click on a link in any suspicious email) and we can advise you whether or not the email is legitimate.
