You and your health plan can save big through the Alliance GPO
We understand that every dollar saved is a dollar you can invest into the health and wellness of your community. Leveraging the group purchasing power of all Alliance members, we’ve negotiated exclusive savings with many of the top service providers in the industry. By purchasing services through the Alliance GPO, you have access to exclusive pricing and/or value-added services. Plus, you can help generate revenue for the Alliance which is invested into programming, services and strategic projects that support the work you’re doing. With the Board of Directors’ approval, a portion of these funds may be given back to your health plan in the form of a product distribution which is credited to your annual membership dues.
Why buy through the GPO?
Receive direct savings
By leveraging the group purchasing power of all the Alliance members, we are able to negotiate exclusive savings and value-added services with many of the top service providers in the industry. Alliance members collectively saved an estimated $3.4 million on services purchased through the Alliance GPO in 2018.
Support the Alliance
When you buy through the Alliance GPO, you also support the Alliance. Last year, 25 percent of Alliance revenue was generated by member purchases made through the Alliance GPO. The Alliance invests this revenue back into programming, services and strategic projects that support the work you're doing.
Reduce your organization's annual membership dues
Often the Alliance doesn't need to invest all the GPO revenue into programming and projects. When this happens, the Board of Directors may approve an amount be returned to the members that generated GPO revenue that year and Alliance shareholders. This year, the Alliance Board of Directors approved $200,000 for distribution to Alliance members.
