THE $100 ASPIRIN
An unfortunate American without health insurance goes to the emergency room. Without insurance, he is a single payer. Single payers pay list price. And, list price is expensive. Very expensive.
Many independent audiologists in the United States are single payers to manufacturers. They do not get the same prices as the big-box stores or chains. We are doing something about that!
INTRODUCING: THE APO
An Audiology Provider Organization (APO) functions like an HMO or PPO. It is a "cost" management program where individual independent audiology practices pool their purchasing power into a single purchasing organization. This organization then negotiates prices based on the thousands of orders its members represent. The entire negotiated price is passed through to each member practice. No percentage is held back.
