topic: Purchasing of Medication

One of the joys of running a DPC clinic is being able to buy medicine at close to cost and pass those savings on to your patients. It’s one of the easiest ways to add substantial value to your patients’ membership, and also provide another level of convenience to your patients’ visits by cutting out an additional visit to a pharmacist. 

Purchasing of Medication

Check If You Qualify in Your State

There are currently 44 states that allow physicians to dispense medications inhouse to their patients with little to no additional paperwork, so it’s prudent to ensure that your practice meets all the requirements.
Check to see if you qualify here:

On top of that, make sure that your state does not require you to add sales tax for over the counter medication, medical supplies or any durable medical equipment ( DME) you may sell from your dispensary:

Set up an Account With AndaMED

They’re one of the biggest providers of medicine to independent physician practices, medical groups, and DPC clinics, and they’re going to be your primary supplier.
Get in touch with Tamara on the following email address to help facilitate the process:

AndaMEDS will provide you with medications, bottles, lids, and many other medical supplies, but they won’t be able to give you everything you need. You can find all of the other miscellaneous medical paraphernalia such as bottle labels of a Dymo printer on Amazon.

Set up Amazon Business Account

You’ll need to set up an Amazon Business account. It’s pretty simple – about as difficult as setting up an ordinary Amazon account – but it comes with a host of benefits. Business account customers can enjoy business pricing, bulk discounts and sometimes even certain tax-exemption benefits.

If you’re unsure about what specific medications, bottles, labels, etc you need to purchase, email Kirk and he will provide you with any additional information you need:
