Purchasing

The Alabama Primary Health Care Association (APHCA) understands the need for organizations to secure professional services and products in the most cost efficient manner and has organized purchasing programs for medical supplies, laboratory, dental supplies and other programs. These opportunities were developed to leverage the purchasing power of APHCA members to achieve economies of scale and value regardless of individual organizational size. Each of these programs service APHCA members with the same quality products at high volume pricing.

Community health providers are constantly challenged to provide high quality, low cost health care to an expanding population. Through these innovative group purchasing programs, APHCA members are able to access pricing structures which allow them to maximize their potential for serving their target populations

Group Purchasing Opportunities are only available to APHCA members. To become an APHCA member, please click here.
