Meet Juliana

McKesson Delivers for Home Medical Equipment Providers

Published on June 6, 2019 Meet Juliana, a fifteen-year-old girl with a rare genetic disorder requiring many medical supplies for her at-home care. Her family's trusted relationship with their HME provider enables her to receive the quality care she needs, and McKesson is proud to be a part of stories like this.

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.
