So they reduced the fee from 404 dollars to 230 dollars? Is that right?

Yes, that's right. On April 13th, the IV fee decreased, going from $404 down to $230. All those getting invoiced for here on after will be charged $230, not $404.

$230 + $74 (surcharge fee) = $303

Please check your invoice before paying fee. I think, DOS is currently upgrading their system. It is better to see option carefully. unsure.gif

The surcharge has either been removed or been included in the $230. It's not $304.
