It is through these exclusive MediGroup contracts that differentiates us from other GPO's, giving our members access to more contracts and savings.

What types of products can MediGroup save me money on?
MediGroup has negotiated contracts for medical surgical items, pharmaceuticals, capital equipment, and office supplies and products for a wide range of healthcare facilities.
What does it cost to become a member?
Nothing! There is no charge or fee to become a member of MediGroup.
How do I access the contracts?
This is a two-part answer!
- You will continue ordering your medical supplies through your medical supply distributor. Please indicate your medical supply distributor on your Participation Agreement and we will work with the distributor to ensure your accounts are connected to our contracts.
- Each of our Value Added Services vendors will have unique instructions on how to access the discounts. You can access this information through our Members Home portal once you become a member or work with one of our MediGroup reps to help facilitate connections.
Can I keep ordering my supplies through my medical supply distributor?
Heck yes you can! We value the relationship you have with your medical supply distributor. We will help your distributor rep with contract connections, so you don’t have to worry!
Do I need to change the products I currently purchase in order meet any compliance requirements?
Nope! Keep on keeping on! You can continue buying what you normally buy, but you also have the option to explore other products and manufacturers if you ever wanted to make a change! Working with your medical supply distributor is an easy way to see what options are out there!
