A mutual marketing agreement to offer medical providers a complete “Bid to Billing” solution for Round 2 of National Competitive Bidding (NCB) was recently reached by Milford, Mass-based Invacare Supply Group (ISG), a division of Invacare Corporation, and Agape Medical Management of Riverside, Calif.
Cheryl Ward, CEO of Agape Medical Management, expounds upon the mutual marketing decision and says, “Combining our efforts with ISG offers providers the best solution possible to successfully manage and complete the rigorous and time-consuming bidding process while maintaining the necessary service levels their patients have come to expect.”
The combination of Agape Medical Management’s working relationships with various state and federal government agencies to ensure the submission of necessary documentation and ISG’s “best value” pricing for name brand product with low fixed freight cost, provides what Cheryl Ward, CEO of Agape, says is, “The best solution possible to successfully manage and complete the rigorous and time-consuming bidding process while maintaining the necessary service levels [providers’] patients have come to expect,”
Doug Harper, vice president and general manager for ISG, reiterates the benefits that the mutual marketing offers providers, as both companies are focused on helping customers develop a viable and profitable solution for competitive bidding that they can work long term. Harper adds that by working with Agape Medical Management, “we provide a complete solution for Round 2 of NCB that we can offer our 13,000-plus customers.”
