Bipolar Interval-valued neutrosophic set is another generalization of fuzzy set, neutrosophic set, bipolar fuzzy set and bipolar neutrosophic set and thus when applied to the optimization problem handles uncertain data more efficiently and flexibly. Current work is an effort to design a flexible optimization model in the backdrop of interval-valued bipolar neutrosophic sets. Bipolar interval-valued neutrosophic membership grades are picked so that they indicate the restriction of the plausible infringement of the inequalities given in the problem. To prove the adequacy and effectiveness of the method a unified system of sustainable medical healthcare supply chain model with an uncertain figure of product complaints is used. Time, quality and cost are considered as satisfaction level to choose best supplier for medicine procurement. The proposed model ensures 99% satisfaction for cost reduction, 63% satisfaction for the quality of product and 64% satisfaction for total time taken in medicine supply chain.
