Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Physicians Direct Marketplace?

The Physicians Direct Marketplace is an online application developed to provide savings exclusively for PDR members to access pre-negotiated and loaded discounted pricing based on the aggregated spend of all Members.

How do I join?

It is quite easy to join! Simply fill out the online sign up Letter of Commitment (LOC) form and we do the rest. Once you have signed up Physicians Direct will contact all of the manufacturers and distributors on your behalf to have your practice added to all of our discounted contracts.

Is there a fee?

Yes. There is a fee of $99.00 per month for each practice. Whether you are an individual doctor or a group of 10 you pay the same low monthly rate.

What is included with my monthly fee?

Access to all Physician Direct member discount contracts, including medical and surgical supplies, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, office supplies, computer supplies, and much more.

What services does Physicians Direct offer?

In addition to getting your practice the lowest possible discounts on supplies and services, we also manage all of the RFPs including negotiating capital equipment purchases on our member's behalf.

What is the VMM program?

Each member has access to the Physicians Direct Virtual Materials Manager (VMM) to assist in all of your purchasing needs. From general supplies to capital equipment, your VMM will assist you in major cost cutting by creating a customized formulary to obtain the largest discounts for your practice.

Does your program offer rebates to its members?

No. Physicians Direct believes that it is better to get its members the best discounts possible upfront rather than have its members pay a higher price for a product only to give it back to them later in the form of a rebate.

How long before I start receiving discounts?

It usually takes 3 to 4 days for your practice to be linked to all of the contracts. Physicians Direct will notify your practice as soon as each vendor or manufacturer is linked.

What are the benefits that my practice should expect as a member?

Access to the Physicians Direct Marketplace will give you immediate access to the lowest possible discounts on supplies and services for your practice.

Since your practice will be purchasing through the Marketplace the purchasing process for your entire practice will be much more organized and improved.

The Physicians Direct Marketplace audits and reviews contracts and pricing in real time to make sure that you are not being overcharged by the vendors.

Hospitals employ an entire Materials Management department to make sure they are not over paying for supplies. Consider Physicians Direct as your very own Virtual Materials Management department. We monitor contracts and vendor pricing in real time to hold them accountable to charge the negotiated contract prices.

Will my practice save more than the monthly fee?

Physicians Direct members save an average of 15% to 30% across the board on all supplies and services purchased for their practices. We are certain that these savings will be more significant than $99.00 per month.

Who do I pay for the supplies I buy?

Your practice will pay the vendors directly as you always have. Physicians Direct is merely your supply chain contracting and negotiating agent.

Can you help me with Capital Equipment purchases?

Absolutely! Let Physicians Direct negotiate the purchase of all of your capital equipment needs. You may be the best negotiator in town, but when you add that to all of our members capital purchases, we use that information to ask for the deepest discounts possible on every piece of equipment.
