BLINK HEALTH ANNOUNCES A PRICE MATCH GUARANTEE ON GENERIC RX
MEDICATIONS

Blink Health Takes Aim at America’s High Prescription Drug Price
Crisis

Blink
Health will now guarantee the lowest prices on all generic
medications available on its website and app.

“Millions of American families struggle to afford the medications they
need for themselves and their loved ones. We’re committed to providing
everyone access to affordable medications,” said Blink Health co-founder
and chief executive officer, Geoffrey Chaiken. “This is one important
step toward achieving our vision.”

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% of those people say that they, or their family members, have not
filled a prescription, have cut pills in half, or have skipped doses
because of costs. In that same poll, 80% of Americans said that they
believe prescription drug prices are unreasonable. Another recent
poll conducted by GS Strategy Group found that 85% of
Americans believe lower prescription drug prices should be an important
or top priority for Congress.

“Our price match guarantee establishes Blink Health as the definitive
place to get the lowest Rx prices, every day. We plan to create
additional programs, expanding accessibility to vital medications for
all Americans,” added co-founder and chief operating officer, Matthew
Chaiken.

A list of the most commonly prescribed medications covered by Blink’s
price match guarantee and applicable terms and conditions can be found

Reactions from Blink Health Patients

Christian L from California – “The prices Blink’s prescription
program gets is 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 [prescription drug
coverage] 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! That’s awesome!”

Elvin H from Colorado – “Blink’s affordable prescriptions gives 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 …
prescription costs every month. Blink is legitimately a life saver
because I’m able to get the seizure medication I need for vastly cheaper
than through [prescription drug coverage] 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 overview

Blink Health makes prescriptions affordable for everyone with the
guaranteed lowest prices on generic medications. Patients simply
purchase their medications through Blink’s website or app and pick up
their prescriptions at a local pharmacy. As the first e-commerce service
of its kind, Blink Health negotiates directly with prescription
medication suppliers on behalf of all Americans and uses technology to
bypass powerful intermediaries.

Blink Health Price Match Guarantee

The price match guarantee covers all generic medications available on
blinkhealth.com or on the Blink Health app. To qualify for a price
match, patients must purchase and pickup a prescription using the lowest
price available at Blink Health–either the Blink Smart Deal, or should
the Blink Smart Deal be unavailable for that medication, at the everyday
low price. Should the patient find a lower price at a pharmacy in their
community, Blink will match the price by refunding the difference,
limited to $1000 per patient per month. Mail delivery pharmacies and
pharmacies outside of the United States are excluded. The lower-priced
offer must be a verifiable, publicly available cash price. Prices
offered through prescription drug coverage or fee-based membership
programs do not qualify. For medications for which Blink Smart Deals are
available, patients must purchase and fill at the Blink Smart Deal price
in order to qualify; Blink Smart Deals are limited to certain
medications and geographies.
