Product FAQs

How does TDSC source products?
TDSC works with both major distributors and direct manufacturers to negotiate on behalf of CDA members. One hundred percent of our Marketplace products come straight from the quality manufacturers and suppliers with which TDSC has a direct relationship. The product details for each item contain the manufacturer and/or supplier source.

What do the letters F, A, S and R mean?
Products include F, A, S and R designations to help you easily find what you need and the best value. F designates formulary, deep-discount brand name products. A, alternate products that are low-cost generic alternatives. S, specialty products that can be special-ordered and may require longer delivery times. And, R, rest of catalog, for all other products.

Can I request a product that is not currently offered on the site?
