Friday, 22 January 2010 12:20

As you may be aware, the Methodist Physician Alliance has partnered with Atlantic Health Partners to offer your practice the lowest prices for Sanofi and Merck vaccines, including Sanofi’s Fluzone. With all the issues that surround flu delivery, it is important to note that Atlantic participating practices received ALL of their 2009 pre-booked Fluzone which totaled close to 1 million doses.

In addition to providing you with the lowest Fluzone prices, Atlantic provides your practice with the  most favorable pricing and purchasing terms for a wide scope of pediatric, adolescent, adult,  and travel vaccines purchased directly from these manufacturers (just like you are probably doing now). And Atlantic’s program extends to discounts on medical and surgical supplies ordered through Sanofi, and there is no cost to join

Atlantic currently works with over 40 physician organizations nationwide. Over 6,000 Physicians are already enrolled in the Atlantic Program and your colleagues report strong satisfaction with the program, most notably for the savings and customer support.

Please contact Jeff Winokur or Cindy Berenson at 800.741.2044 or email to find out how Atlantic can benefit your practice.
