Searching for health insurance options? The ADA can help!
Calls to the VDA office suggest a possible ADA Dues payment scam. We've seen this come up every few years, a VDA member gets a call or email suggesting that they have not paid their ADA membership dues. The communication will direct the member to a web address to make the payment.
Currently, the ADA/VDA is NOT issuing any calls to members to collect dues. If you have any questions regarding your payment status, please contact our Director of Membership, Leslie Pinkston at firstname.lastname@example.org or 804-523-2189.
