Amerinet Rehab and Internet Addiction Coverage

Amerinet is a group purchasing organization, or GPO, which means that it is not a healthcare facility or insurer. It is a company that works with doctor offices, clinics, long-term care facilities, surgery centers, and hospitals to reduce the costs they pay out to vendors while improving efficiency, patient safety, and quality.

The company may also work with rehab and detox facilities as well as inpatient recovery centers to help them reduce costs that they may later pass on to their patients. However, Amerinet does not perform any treatment and does not insure treatment for addiction.

Intermountain Healthcare is a non-profit system based in Utah. It works with health services that have more than 34,000 employees. Their system is comprised of 185 physician’s clinics and 22 hospitals as well as SelectHealth, a health plans branch. It has a good reputation as a healthcare supply chain organization and is nationally ranked number 3 by Gartner’s.

A division of Amerinet is Amerinet Choice which offers its members low price, participation rebates, and high quality selection of environmental, pharmaceutical, medical and office products. Their cost saving programs for members means that those members save a substantial amount and those healthcare providers pass on the saving to their patients. Sometimes the members offer reduced rate healthcare solutions for their own patients.

Amerinet’s membership, as of November 2015 boasts more than 3,000 acute care health systems and more than 75,000 non-acute care health care systems. The breakdown is as follows:

  • 3,682 Acute Care Hospitals
  • 34,286 Clinics
  • 10.682 Long Term Inpatient Care Facilities
  • 233 Physicians who are Hospital Based
  • 3,502 Ambulatory Surgery Centers
  • 1,214 Emergency Services
  • 34,228 Other Types of Healthcare Services or Systems (including recovery, detox, inpatient, and rehab centers)

This is a total of 87,827 members that Amerinet helps save money. In 2014, members of Amerinet collectively saved in excess of $1.23 billion by using the company’s service contracts and diverse product portfolio. The company has grown over the years to become for member centric and stronger than it has ever been. Every dollar that their members save directly impacts their organizations which is felt and experienced by their patients.

By seeking out rehab facilities and inpatient recovery treatment centers that are Amerinet members you can expect to pay lower prices for treatment and be introduced to a network of pharmacies, hospitals and other healthcare providers that are also Amerinet members and can therefore offer you reduced rates as well. Staying within the Amerinet network is a smart choice.
