AAHA-accredited members: Do you have a basic website created and managed by Beyond Indigo Pets? If so, read on for an important update. 

As you may have read in a recent Red article, we have made some changes to our affinity programs. On July 1, we launched our new Member Values Program (MVP). At that time, Beyond Indigo Pets (BIP)--the company that provides your free, basic website--was transitioned from our Preferred Provider Program to our new Member Values Program. 

Hosting a website on the Internet is no longer easy or inexpensive. Because of changes made by Google, and the changes in the agreement between AAHA and Beyond Indigo Pets, the determination has been made that we can no longer maintain websites at no cost and still keep up with the ever-changing online environment. 

Beginning Oct. 1, 2015, a hosting and maintenance fee of $39 per month will be implemented for all AAHA-accredited member practices that currently have a free basic website managed by Beyond Indigo Pets.

If you are affected by this change, you should have received an email (sent on Aug. 4), and you'll receive a follow-up letter in the coming weeks, outlining various options available to you and asking you to contact Beyond Indigo by Sept. 25 regarding your options and preferences going forward.

If you currently have a free website but did not receive the email or letter, please contact Beyond Indigo Pets at [email protected] or 877-244-9322 to discuss your options. If you choose to call, please leave a brief message and a Beyond Indigo Pets representative will call you back within one business day. 

Any general questions about these changes can be directed to Dan McGaw, AAHA affinity programs manager, at [email protected] or by calling 800-252-2242.
