What is a PBG
MPPG is a physician buying group, built to bring savings on vaccines, medical supplies, and the products you use most, at no cost to your medical practice.
What is a Physician Buying Group (PBG)?
PBGs are a collection of medical practices that band together for the purpose of negotiating discounts on the goods and services used in a medical practice. Though most of them are focused on vaccines, which are very costly, some have ventured to negotiate discounts on other aspects of operating a medical practice.
How can a PBG like MPPG help my practice?
MPPG can benefit your medical practice by providing you with better pricing on vaccines and supplies. And, if a PBG shares some of their administration fees, that can help as well. But there are also other ways that a PBG can help; preferred payment options, better return policies, special educational opportunities, and a stronger voice and leverage with manufacturers. The more contracts you use, the more money you save.
What is the difference between a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) and a Physician Buying Group?
GPOs are focused primarily on hospitals and the supplies and equipment that they utilize. As a PBG, MPPG is focused on doctors’ offices.
