Missing an issue?

All claims of missing issues must be received within 3 months of the issue date to avoid postage charges. After that point, subscribers will be required to pay postage for a replacement. For example: subscribers missing the January issue have until April 30 to request a replacement without paying postage.

ASHS will send one replacement issue with notification within the claim period. Claims received after the 3-month claim period will be filled after receipt of the postage due to ship the missing issue.
