Users have an option to downgrade to Free plan too, when it is done, users are responsible for managing their data when usage restrictions are applied.
For the monthly encounter based plan, (“the subscription fee”) invoice will be generated on the first day of every month based on usage in the previous month. In addition, where monthly minimum charges are applicable and or add-on costs are applicable, they will also be charged along with monthly invoice.
For the provider based fixed cost plan, user will be charged fixed amount per provider on the first day of every month. Any additional charges based on usage exceeding plan limits, will also be charged to the user on the first of the subsequent month. If a user wishes to purchase annual or long-term plans, such user can request for a quote. Upon acceptance of quote, Invoice will be sent and upon payment of invoice, and the plan will come into effect from that date onwards for the licensed period.
The Subscription Fee will be charged to (i) the Credit Card on file by using https, with SSL certificate issued from Equifax Secure Certificate Authority or (ii) bank account on file through ACH transfer from such bank account. You hereby authorize MedicalMine to charge your credit card and/or bank account on file with us on the 1st day of each month or as and when the payment is due. It is your responsibility to update payment information if you would like to be charged to a different Credit Card or bank account.

Any payment that is not paid when due hereunder will be subject to a late payment charge at the rate of one percent (1%) for each month or part of a month (or, if lower, the highest rate permitted by applicable law) for any period during which the amount due will remain unpaid. In the event that payment is past due for more than three (3) months or when the past due amount exceeds $5000, MedicalMine reserves the right to collect payment through third party agencies. MedicalMine reserves the right to change the subscription fee and to charge for use of Services that are currently available free of charge.

MedicalMine may, as an accommodation to you, provide you with notice prior to or promptly following any suspension of the Services, but is under no legal obligation to do so. MedicalMine will restore your access to the Services as soon as the payment is made.
