CINCINNATI, June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- HealthWarehouse.com, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: HEWA), a leading retail mail-order pharmacy, announced today the expansion of its discount generic list to include more than 750 medications under $20 for a 30-day supply. With the addition of these medicines the company now offers more than 1,000 medications below $25 for a 30-day supply, bringing much needed relief to consumers struggling with prescription drug prices. All medications are immediately available for purchase at http://www.HealthWarehouse.com.
According to CNNmoney.com, "unemployment remains near 10% and many of the jobs employers are adding are temporary or contract positions, rather than traditional full-time jobs with benefits." For those that remain insured, health insurance co-pays continue to rise, with some as high as $25 - $30 for prescription medications. As a result, the number of consumers who are struggling to pay for prescription medication continues to increase.
For example, most insurance co-pays would charge a consumer buying the cholesterol drug Simvastatin (generic Zocor) $10 to $20 for 90 tablets. HealthWarehouse allows the same consumer to purchase 90 Tablets for $9.50, at a lower cost than their co-pay. In addition to the cost savings, HealthWarehouse.com eliminates time-consuming insurance forms and long waits at the pharmacy counter.
While many pharmacies currently offer $4 generics at their store locations, only HealthWarehouse.com offers 300 medications for $3.50 with free shipping to the consumer's home. With the expansion to over 1,000 medications below $25, HealthWarehouse now offers a wide variety of medications at affordable prices and the convenience of free home delivery to any location in the United States.
"While the industry has made progress in reducing prescription drugs costs, much is left to be done," said Lalit Dhadphale, President and CEO of HealthWarehouse.com. "Our goal is to make medications affordable to the average consumer who is either uninsured or increasingly becoming "under-insured" due to the rise in insurance co-pays. We look to build upon our leading position by providing Americans relief from high drug costs with a viable, legal avenue to purchase their medications in the United States."
