What is the cost of AAD Member Buying Program?
There is no cost – it is a FREE member benefit offered by AAD.
Will AAD Member Buying Program bill me, ask for a credit card or try to sell me anything?
No, AAD Member Buying Program does not sell anything other than the value of participation, which is free.
What happens after I sign-up?
We are in contact with you to answer any questions and will ask for your medical supply distributor – in many cases we are already in-touch with them. We contact your distributor to ensure that the program is a good fit and will lower costs. If the program is not a fit, or you work with a distributor that is unable to access our costs, we will contact you with options before moving forward. You may cancel at any time.
What if the program is not a good fit?
If the program is not a good fit, you will hear from AAD Member Buying Program first, but if for any reason you decide it is not the right program, just let us know via an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond with an email confirmation cancelling participation.
Will this change how I order from or make payment to distributors or manufacturers?
No, AAD Member Buying Program does not change how you order and receive invoices from your suppliers. AAD Member Buying Program will never invoice you and you continue to order and pay as you are accustomed.
What is offered beyond medical supply savings?
Almost every non-labor component of your expense budget is covered, including office supplies, direct contracts and employee perks. We will be in-touch once we’ve established medical supply savings with your distributor to review these opportunities.
Will my organization receive access to hospital pricing?
Yes, and while many programs advertise ‘hospital pricing’ – not all hospitals receive the lowest pricing. This is the lowest, most competitive, pricing available.
