When does billing begin?
You do not need to sign up for a plan—or enter a credit card for any reason—during your free trial period. After your trial ends, you must sign up for a plan to continue using Spruce, and billing will begin when you sign up. If you sign up for a plan before your free trial ends, billing will begin only after your trial expires.
How long is my contract? Is it easy to cancel?
Spruce uses month-to-month contracts and billing by default, and we don't have contracts longer than this, unless you've specifically planned one with us. We want to win your trust and your business every month by providing a great service, not by locking you into a long-term payment obligation.
We also make it easy to cancel your Spruce subscription at any time, for any reason. You can do this right from within Spruce, but please consider reaching out to us before you do, if there's anything we can do to keep you with us. Our goal is to make Spruce the easiest and most valuable choice every medical practice can make, and we're all ears for ways we can continue to improve. If you do decide to cancel, we'll prorate the bill for your current service period.
Are there any additional fees?
There is a one-time $19 fee to enable outbound SMS text messaging for your organization on Spruce. This $19 fee covers the mandatory telecom industry fee for registering business SMS traffic with the major carrier networks. This industry fee is not related to Spruce services and is being passed along without markup. The fee is charged only once per organization on Spruce, regardless of number of business phone lines in use, and the fee will not be charged if your organization opts out of SMS messaging. Learn more about phone registration.
If you choose to use Spruce VoIP desk phones, we will bill the phone hardware that you choose as a one-time charge, separate from your Spruce subscription.
How is my bill determined? What counts as a user on Spruce?
Spruce pricing is per user per month, and a user is any teammate you have added to your Spruce organization. Generally, this will include all clinicians, staff, and other employees (but not your patients). Spruce is not priced by number of phone lines or amount of feature usage.
Whenever you add or remove a teammate on Spruce, your bill will automatically increase or decrease to reflect the change.
Are there usage limits?
We've worked hard to make our monthly per-seat pricing model match the usage needs of all types of medical practices, regardless of organization size. Because of this, the vast majority of practices can (and do!) use all of Spruce's features in an effectively unlimited way, and we do not charge individually for texts, video calls, voice minutes, or other feature use. We also do not have any hard caps or automatic schedules of "overage" charges, and there will never be any surprise upcharges on your bill.
This fixed pricing works best for nearly all Spruce customers, as our goal is for you to be able to use Spruce as much and as often as possible, without having to worry about a bill that might be quietly ballooning in the background.
In the rare case that an organization's heavy use of Spruce is not compatible with the pricing of its chosen plan, we will reach out to the organization to describe the issue and to negotiate a custom price.
If you are concerned that your planned use of Spruce might be unusual, please feel free to ask our sales team ahead of time. As a general guide, extreme per-person usage of voice minutes, video minutes, SMS messages, and fax pages would be most likely to benefit from a custom pricing discussion.
How many phone and fax lines does Spruce support?
Spruce can support any number of phone and fax lines for your organization, and the system is designed to let users provision and configure new lines in a self-service manner.
By default, your subscription plan will determine the number of phone lines that your organization can provision:
• Basic: One line for each user, plus one additional line
• Communicator: Two lines for each user, plus one additional line
Fax lines work the same way. So a 3-user practice on our Basic plan could set up 4 phone lines and 4 fax lines without needing any help from our support team.
If your situation will require more lines than your subscription plan will allow for, just message our support team in the Spruce app, and we'll help you sort it out.
