The Academy has heard from a number of members that have reported that Amazon Business does not recognize them as health-care providers for the purposes of purchasing supplies in bulk.
The Academy spoke with an Amazon representative that indicated that the types of health-care providers recognized for the purposes of an Amazon business account in general varies from state to state and is based on state regulations.
However, during the COVID-19 crisis, health-care practitioners in receipt of any valid state issued health-care license are eligible to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE).
On the Amazon Business website, select the “COVID-19 Supplies on Amazon Business” tab. That will then take you through the process to set up a free Amazon business account and will request the individual’s NPI number.
