Membership

  • Contracts Paid Monthly: All contracts that are paid on a monthly basis are 12-month contracts. After 12 months, the contract automatically rolls over to a month-to-month contract and may be cancelled with 30 Day Advance Notice. Unless the member terminates his or her membership as set forth in the paragraphs below, all members are responsible for the duration of the contract agreement. There are no refunds of any sort, dealing with membership or programming at CSC. Your dues/fees are not based on usage and any change of status is the member’s responsibility.
  • Dues and other charges are due on the first day of each month. A late fee of $10.00 will be charged to the member’s account for any unpaid balance after the 10th of the month. Email statements and paper statements are sent near the 25th of each month for the following month’s dues. Monthly statements are sent as a courtesy. EFT MEMBERS: An electronic funds transfer will be deducted on the 1st business day of the month. Courtesy debit notices are not sent to members. A fee of $20.00 will be charged to member’s account if EFT is denied or declined for any reason. A $5 Statement Processing Fee is added to any contract for paper statements.
  • Cancellation Policy: Member acknowledges that he/she cannot cancel the agreement before his/her minimum term has expired. However, CSC will waive the contract agreement period ONLY if a cancellation fee of $150.00 is paid, for any reasons, before the end of the agreement. Members will be allowed to cancel their contracts, with proof, under the following exceptions: becoming disabled, death, or moving more than 25 miles from CSC.
  • Prepaid Contracts: All prepaid contracts have an exact expiration date, either 3, 6, or 12 months from the start date. All prepaid contracts must be paid in full on the date of signing. Unless the member terminates his or her membership as set forth in the paragraphs below, all members are responsible for the duration of the contract agreement. There are no refunds of any sort, dealing with membership or programming at CSC. Your dues/fees are not based on usage, and any change of status is the member’s responsibility. There are NO REFUNDS for any prepaid memberships. Prepaid memberships may be sold and transferred only with approval of CSC.
  • Status Change: Any holds, cancellations, deletions, additions, or any other changes to your current membership term require a 30-Day Advance Notice. All paperwork must be completed by the Primary Member by the 1st of the month. Absolutely no retroactive changes will be permitted. Primary Member must come into Membership or Billing, have a zero balance and be current regarding payment of dues to complete the appropriate forms to make any changes to their account.
  • Placing Your Account on Hold: Members are allowed to place their account on hold in increments of 30-day periods. Any vacation or non-medical hold is $15 per month. A medical hold is a $15 total fee, but must be accompanied with a doctor’s note. A hold places the entire account on hold, not just one member. The hold also extends out the expiration date of your contract (ie. If you put it on hold for 2 months, then your expiration date is extended out 2 months.)
  • Changes must be made in the office by primary member.
