Physician Offices

AdvantageTrust offers members in physician offices and clinics the opportunity to save substantial dollars on the supplies they purchase. Medical/surgical supplies are available through two contracted distributors with pricing established through the combined leverage of HealthTrust’s contract portfolio. This portfolio has been negotiated directly with companies like 3M, Becton-Dickinson and Covidien, providing the optimal leverage for members.

In addition to medical supplies, discounts are available in categories such as office supplies, express mail, scrubs, cell phones, copiers and faxes.

While there is no cost to participate in the program, members are required to participate exclusively with HealthTrust. This is a reasonable requirement since the savings substantiates the commitment.

    AdvantageTrust has been helpful with our non-acute businesses—long-term care, home care/hospice and physician [offices]. Its rostering process is easy and fast at getting locations up and running. The AdvantageTrust team is available and responsive to our needs and helps our locations gain access to all eligible contracts in the HealthTrust portfolio to realize savings.
