Do I have to use the suppliers that UVG NZ has deals with?

No, you can use as little or as much as you would like. You can work with our Marketing Manager Kate, to ensure you understand our deals and how best to leverage them for your practice.

Am I tied into a contract to get the UVG NZ deals?

As your first year of membership is completely risk free, as soon as you become a UVG NZ member, our wholesaler and suppliers will be able to disclose the full deals with your practice so you can compare how this looks against your current arrangements.

Can I see what’s in it for me without any risk?

Yes, we have a no catch, risk free guarantee. If we have not saved you more money than the cost of your 1st year of membership, we will refund your total membership in full*. That means you can become a member for the first twelve months completely risk free.

How do I know that I will get a better deal than what I am currently on?

As your first year of membership is completely risk free, as soon as you become a member, our wholesalers and suppliers will be able to disclose the full deals with your practice so you can compare how this looks against your current arrangements. The size of our membership base and ownership organisation allows us to negotiate industry leading agreements for our members.

Do I order through the UVG NZ?

No, you place your order direct through your wholesaler.  Once you are a UVG NZ Member and have a new membership number, the wholesaler will tag you on their accounts, so you are eligible for the UVG NZ exclusive prices.

Does it matter where my practice is located?

No. Our suppliers can supply to all of New Zealand.

How much would I expect to save from the wholesaler deal?

This is dependent on which wholesalers you currently use and what deals you have in place. On average, members save between 6% and 10% off their drug bill. We have seen savings as high as 15%. Rebates are then paid on top of this.

How are the rebates calculated and distributed?

We have agreements with certain manufacturers.  If you use their products (ordered through the UVG NZ wholesaler), we get reports at the end of every quarter for these products.  We calculate how much you have used, send the information to the manufacturer and then they give us the rebate amount.  This is done every quarter.  The distribution is based on how much your clinic uses of a product, it has nothing to do with other UVG NZ’s member’s usage.
