CHAD has partnered with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) to bring to its members a Value in Purchasing (ViP) opportunity to  negotiate pricing on medical supplies and equipment, resulting in cost savings for participating CHCs.

The ViP program is the only national group purchasing program for medical supplies and equipment endorsed by NACHC. ViP has leveraged the national purchasing power of health centers to negotiate discounted prices for products and services used on a day-to-day basis. Currently, over 600 health centers are enrolled in the program nationally. ViP has saved health centers millions of dollars, with average savings of 25%-38% on all health center purchases.

The program is managed through CHAD and Community Health Ventures, the business development affiliate of NACHC. Currently, the CHAD/ViP program has negotiated preferred vendor agreements with Henry Schein and Kreisers. Both companies provide high-quality name brand and private brand products delivered through world-class distribution.

CHAD member health centers are encouraged to request a free cost savings analysis by calling 1‐888‐299‐0324
