Patients Automatically Receive Information on Pricing of Prescribed Medications, Including Cost Plus Drugs’ Transparent Pricing

DOVER, DELAWARE: Today, RxLink, a firm founded with the same commitment to price transparency in prescription medicine as Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company, PBC (Cost Plus Drugs) announced a new collaboration to connect patients of leading health systems with Cost Plus Drugs’ offering of safe medicines at the lowest possible price.

RxLink partners with health systems to deliver transparency to patients. The RxLink MedMapTM automatically accounts for a patient’s insurance, third-party discount cards and manufacturer offers to check for coverage and provide a lowest-cost recommendation for each medication to patients via SMS and a web portal. The MedMap™ now includes Cost Plus Drugs and has already identified and surfaced over $162,000 in patient savings after only 3 months of including Cost Plus Drugs pricing.

The Head of Strategic Partnerships at RxLink, JB Powell, describes the relationship as “a natural way for two organizations committed to ensuring access to safe, affordable medicines to work together. There has never been a solution that allows patients to easily understand exactly what their medications will cost before they go to the pharmacy. If we identify ways to reduce out-of-pocket costs, we connect the patient with them automatically; those options would be incomplete without including Cost Plus Drugs’ low and transparent pricing. The added benefit is that by working with health systems and other digital health solutions, the savings are delivered by someone they can trust – their doctor.”

Through partnership with a broad range of medication savings solutions, RxLink saves patients leveraging the platform an average of over $100 per month on the prescriptions they need. This builds up quickly across health systems with high volumes of patients – many saving their patients well over $1M per year.

“We are excited to work with RxLink to bring lower prescription drug prices to consumers,” said Alex Oshmyansky, CEO of Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company. “Cost Plus Drugs and RxLink share a common goal of providing consumers the lowest possible price for their prescription medication. With Cost Plus Drugs, consumers can be confident they are getting a fair price and the convenience of medication mailed directly to their homes.”
