Santa Monica, CA – July 10, 2015 – SimpleRx announces a pharmacy prescription savings network that gives people without insurance and those with limited insurance, access to immediate savings on their medication.
The United States Census Bureau and other reports divulge over 40 million people in the U.S. do not have healthcare coverage, and approximately another 38 million have inadequate insurance. The SimpleRx program presents discounts off retail prices on virtually every prescription medication at over 63,000 pharmacies nationwide including Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Target, Rite Aid, Kroger, Kmart, Longs and Albertsons. SimpleRx discounts are also valid in conjunction with The Affordable Care Act benefits.
“SimpleRx is designed to help alleviate some of the fear that the uninsured can have seeking healthcare attention and, specifically, filling prescriptions by providing an easy solution for costly medications,” says Drew Golden, Founder and CEO. “The most important factors in developing the program was to ensure that it is as simple as possible to participate while ensuring the privacy of our consumers. This includes the program being offered free for unlimited usage without expiration, no enrollment required and no sharing of personal or prescription information; SimpleRx is 100% HIPAA compliant.”
Consumers are required to simply print out a card from the website, or download the free mobile app available on iTunes, and present to the pharmacist when filling or refilling a prescription. The cards are pre-activated allowing users to receive immediate savings of up to 80% depending on the drug and manufacturer. A newly launched ‘Best Price Finder’ puts the power in consumers’ hands to find the best price and discounts for any given medication. Most Americans don’t know that prescription prices vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. By entering the name of the medication and a zip code, SimpleRx ‘Best Price Finder’ compares real-time and up-to-date pricing of drugs and provides a list of the nearest local pharmacies with the lowest pricing. In the case of generic drugs, this can equate to less than $5 per fill.
“We are constantly looking for ways to make this a total experience for our consumers. The introduction of the mobile app and Best Price Finder are more than just great technology tools, they bring value to our consumers’ lives by helping them take charge of their budgeting and health. When a family can save several hundred dollars a month on important prescriptions using our program, that’s real, and we get to see how our program is helping to make a difference,” adds Michael Lallana, Chief Operations Officer.
The SimpleRx network has been utilized by over 3.5 million consumers and counting with 2015 plans for growth focused on new technology, better pricing and other valued products that continue to serve those who do not have a healthcare plan.
SimpleRx is a Santa Monica-based company providing affordable retail prescription pricing to over 3.5 million consumers nationally through their Prescription Savings Network program. Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Drew Golden, and Chief Operations Officer, Michael Lallana, head up Pacific Rx Networks, LLC, and the group behind SimpleRx. The two long time friends and seasoned finance and operations executives met at USC Marshall School of Business in 1998. Upon graduation, their initial career paths took them in separate directions but when, in 2012, Golden created the program that has become SimpleRx, the opportunity opened up to bring Lallana on board as his right hand man.
