Blink Health Announces Price Match Guarantee on Nearly All Generic Rx Medications

Blink
Health, the health technology company saving Americans money on
prescription drugs, announced today that it will now guarantee the
lowest prices on nearly all generic medications with a Price Match
Guarantee covering more than 500 generic drugs – including the 200
most-prescribed generics in the U.S. and more than 95 percent of
medications purchased through Blink.

“Millions of American families struggle to afford the medications they
need for themselves and their loved ones,” said Blink Health co-founder
and CEO, Geoffrey Chaiken. “Our price match guarantee establishes Blink
Health as the definitive place to get the lowest prescription prices,
every day, simply by purchasing their medications online and picking
them up at a nearby participating pharmacy. We’re committed to providing
everyone with access to affordable medications, and our price match
guarantee is an important step toward achieving this.”

Blink Health’s new pricing will make a significant impact on the growing
crisis of high drug prices in America. A March
2018 poll conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation
found that one in four Americans report taking four or more
prescriptions, and 35 percent of those people say that they or a family
member has not filled a prescription, has cut pills in half, or has
skipped doses because of costs. In that same poll, 80 percent of
Americans said that they believe prescription drug prices are
unreasonable, and the majority believe lowering prescription drug prices
should be a top government priority.

The full list of medications covered by Blink’s price match guarantee
can be found on the company’s website at blinkhealth.com/blink-smart-deals,
including those drugs in the accompanying graphic.

Reactions from Blink Health Patients

Christian L from California – “The prices Blink’s prescription program
gets are such a lifesaver for me. I live with high blood pressure and a
heart issue that runs in my family, so my medications are really
expensive for me and my income doesn’t really support insurance plans
that have prescription options with them. When I tried Blink for the
first time I was really skeptical, but when the pharmacist told me what
my total was, I almost started crying right there at the register. My
total was 85% less than what I would have paid if I didn’t have Blink. I
walked out with all of my medications and I didn’t have to pay full
price. From that moment, I became a solid Blink user. This program is a
lifesaver for me…and now they are offering price matching? That is
awesome! Look out everyone else, Blink is coming through!”

Elvin H from Colorado – “Blink’s affordable prescriptions give me
freedom to live my life. Before I knew of them, I was living under
constant stress trying to figure out how to pay the exorbitant health
insurance and prescription costs every month. Blink is legitimately a
lifesaver because I’m able to get the seizure medication I need for
vastly cheaper than through insurance or the retail value…. Their new
price match sounds very exciting to me!”

Charlene P from Kentucky – “I’m excited about the price match guarantee
and will definitely use Blink for all of our medications. We’ve never
had a problem getting our meds and it’s SO much fun to watch everyone
when the druggist says ‘no charge.’”

Susan H from Ohio – “Blink has made it possible for my husband to get a
medication that there is no way possible for us to afford. They have a
great program for people with type 2 diabetes. They personally called my
pharmacy and talked to the pharmacist for us. The very next day my
husband was taking the medication. Thanks to Blink. They really are very
caring and extremely helpful. Now with this new price match guarantee we
will surely be getting more of our meds from them. I advise everyone to
at least check them out. I’m glad we did.”

Blink Health Price Match Guarantee

Blink Health’s price match guarantee is limited to certain medications
and excludes narcotic pain killers. The full list of available
medications and set of conditions is available at blinkhealth.com.

If patients find a lower price for their Blink Smart Deal prescription
at a pharmacy in their community, Blink will match that price and refund
them the difference. To submit a price match claim, the lower offer must
be available at a retail pharmacy within the specific community. Mail
delivery and pharmacies outside of the United States are excluded. The
lower offer must be a publicly available cash price. Insurance and
fee-based membership programs are excluded. The medication must have
been purchased with the Blink Smart Deal, which are limited to certain
medications and geographies. Everyday Low Prices do not qualify.
