About NPC

National Physician Care is a group purchasing organization for private practice physicians, non-governmental health clinics, corporate employee health clinics, and travel clinics. Membership in National Physician Care allows the member to purchase products and services through our contracts with pharmaceutical companies, medical distributors and medical service providers. Typically the pricing and terms of sale are significantly better than a single medical practice or other purchaser could obtain on their own. The company does not charge a fee to the individual medical practice or business but receives an administrative fee from the vendors.  The standard fee is 1% and 3% of the total purchase volume.

Key Facts About NPC

The company began group purchasing for private practice physicians in 1996 and currently serves medical practices in 50 states, representing approximately twenty thousand private practice physicians. National Physician Care contracts with five vaccine manufacturers, two medical product distributors and an internet based child development evaluation service. The company continues to add new vendors and service providers as requested by our members and is currently evaluating additional distributors and office management services.
