The problem with my query is it adds duplicates.

I do not want an item to be added it it was already added.
INSERT INTO `Group_Members` (`GroupID`,`MemberID`) SELECT '22', `ID` from `Member` WHERE `UserSuspended` != '1' AND `PremPlusMember` != '1' AND `PremWebMember` = '1' AND `SMSMember` != '1'

you have 2 options:
* use the ON DUPLICATE KEY.. syntax (resp the REPLACE syntax):
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/insert-on-duplicate.html

* or you write your query so it does not return duplicates, resp does not insert rows that are already in the table
INSERT INTO `Group_Members` (`GroupID`,`MemberID`) 
SELECT '22', `ID` from `Member` m
WHERE `UserSuspended` != '1' AND `PremPlusMember` != '1' AND `PremWebMember` = '1' AND `SMSMember` != '1'
 AND NOT EXISTS( select null from Group_Members g WHERE g.GroupID = 22 and g.MemberID = m.ID )
