GlaxoSmithKline 

Physician Business Partners (PBP) and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) have partnered together since 2001 to provide physicians access to contracted pricing on pediatric vaccines.

The collective purchasing power of CMHN continues to provide physicians and physician groups upfront discounts on the following GSK vaccines: Boostrix, Cervarix, Energix-B, Fluarix, FluLaval, Havrix, Hiberix, Infanrix, Kinrix, Menhibrix, Pediarix, Rotarix, Twinrix, Menveo, Bexsero, RabAvert, and IXIARO.

What differentiates this contract from others in the marketplace:

  • Every new GSK vaccine introduced to the market is automatically added to our contract.
  • This contract allows for only one price increase per calendar year.
  • Our contract allows for a 1.5% percent administrative fee payable to PBP to develop educational programs for our Premier network participants and their practices.

We continually evaluate contracting opportunities with other vaccine manufacturers. At this time, we believe it is in your best interest to maintain our partnership with GSK. As we look to the future of childhood immunizations, GSK's portfolio appears to be the most comprehensive, providing the greatest coverage for childhood and adolescent immunizations.
