The importance of HME advocacy


When patients, providers, distributors and others come together to advocate on behalf of patients, real change is possible. Watch as Maria and her provider join forces, and how McKesson can help.

Alliances for your success

We consult and work closely with HME industry leaders to bring our customers solutions that work. Our industry leader alliances include:

  • AAHomecare
  • The VGM Group
  • Brightree
  • And more

And because we’re focused on your success, we do not support sole sourcing. Instead, we believe quality, cost and access (triple aim) need to be balanced as payers consider reimbursement models.

We’re also highly engaged with advocacy groups like AAHomecare and state associations, and we advocate on behalf of the HME industry alongside our customers at both the state and federal levels. Learn more about our advocacy efforts to support you >

To learn more about how McKesson Medical-Surgical can help your HME today, please talk to your account manager, or call us at 1-855-571-2100.

Distribution HME providers can count on

Why use our patient home delivery?
With our patient home delivery service, we carry the stock and do the work for you – simply place the order for the patient’s prescribed equipment, and we fulfill the order and ship to your patient using UPS. We even personalize the packing slip to keep that customer connection to the patient and promote your business.

  • Reduce or even eliminate shipping, inventory and warehouse space
  • Eliminate related costs like spoilage, fuel, insurance and fleet maintenance
  • Decrease additional labor costs in shipping and receiving
  • Serve your patients more quickly, with orders typically delivered the next day

Ask your McKesson Medical-Surgical Account Manager to walk you through our patient home delivery savings calculator to get real-time data on how you can save on delivery fees, inventory, warehouse and administrative expenses and more. Or, call us today at 1-855-571-2100.
