MMCAP Infuse creates and shares valuable savings through competitively bid and aggressively negotiated contracts that adhere to State of Minnesota procurement regulations. MMCAP Infuse leverages member volume aggregation to forge deep cost savings on pharmaceuticals and healthcare products for its members across the nation.
Use of MMCAP Infuse is free for our members and purchasing from our contracts is voluntary.
A portion of the vendor administrative fees collected by MMCAP Infuse fund our operations, and 100% of unused vendor fees are returned to member facilities as a wholesaler credit. The amount returned is based on contract purchases, and MMCAP Infuse returns a much higher percentage of administrative fees to its members compared to other GPOs.
MMCAP Infuse employs six regional Senior Healthcare Consultant (SHCs). This team of experienced healthcare and regional management professionals assists with contract usage and value optimization monitoring, preparing business reviews for each account, monitoring off-contract purchasing, and ensuring pricing attachment, as well as quickly resolving any account issues.
MMCAP Infuse Focus is a contract management tool that provides detailed reporting and graphics of vendor sales data. Each state purchasing contact has access. MMCAP Infuse will also provide custom reporting upon request.
MMCAP Infuse contracts are competitively bid following State of Minnesota stringent procurement guidelines. The resulting comprehensive healthcare contract portfolio is available for use by our member states for state agencies, as well as counties, cities, school districts and other political subdivisions.
The MMCAP Infuse Advisory Board consists of a chairperson, who is appointed by the managing director, and eight other board members, who are member-elected, all from states across the country.

The Advisory Board is the voice of membership and provides recommendations to MMCAP Infuse on strategic direction of the program.
MMCAP Infuse procurements and contracts are managed by licensed pharmacist and experienced healthcare professionals that listen to, and understand, the needs of our members, allowing for comprehensive healthcare products and services offerings.
