Description

Novation, a group purchasing organization based in Texas, was created to negotiate lower prices with medical supply manufacturers on behalf of one-third of the hospitals nationwide. It has been accused of actually raising prices and squeezing out small manufacturers. Thanks to an exemption granted by Congress, from anti-kickback laws, Novation is financed by the very manufacturers it's supposed to be fighting.
