Group Purchasing

If you’ve ever dreaded the wholesaler bidding process, you’re not alone. That’s why we created a complimentary group purchasing concierge service that helps independent pharmacies with their purchasing needs. 

Pharmacies hire representation when they’re not an expert in that field… and pharmacy purchasing today is complex. You negotiate prices, rebates, terms, and once you get all that done, you’re still not finished… A lot of owners are just not prepared to effectively negotiate with wholesalers. This is where we come in. 

APPA member benefits extend beyond the significant savings we provide through our group purchasing services. While group purchasing is at the core of what we do, APPA is committed to offering additional value to help our members grow and excel.

Our programs offer APPA members a wide array of benefits ranging from CE credits to an employee discount benefit, solutions for serving specialty pharmacy patients to advocacy on legislative issues. Our goal is to support our members across the spectrum of best business practices. And all of these programs are value-adds, meaning members can participate without any costs or fees.
