BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 9, 2017
BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MailMyPrescriptions.com™, America's first and only wholesale pharmacy service, announced today that it has contracted with AmerisourceBergen for a strategic pharmaceutical distribution agreement. One of the leading pharmaceutical wholesalers, AmerisourceBergen (NYSE: ABC) supplies Publix and Walgreens-Boots Alliance. The agreement enables MailMyPrescriptions.com™ to offer its members the same generic prescription drugs offered by Publix and Walgreens, at the same price MailMyPrescriptions.com™ buys the medications from Amerisource Bergen.
The long-term agreement encompasses the distribution of low cost generic pharmaceutical products. MailMyPrescriptions.com™ plans to begin dispensing medications purchased through AmerisourceBergen in the coming weeks. The agreement also enables MailMyPrescriptions.com™ to eventually offer branded and over-the-counter health and pharmaceutical products to its members.
"This is an exciting development in the growth of MailMyPrescriptions.com™," said Santo J. Leo, Founder/CEO of MailMyPrescriptions.com. "It's through visionary partnerships like this that we can begin to bring cheaper medications to millions of hardworking Americans, who are forced to make life-altering choices regarding the affordability of their healthcare."
Dedicated to helping the estimated 54 million Americans who pay out-of-pocket for prescription medication, MailMyPrescriptions.com™ is the first and only national pharmacy service to pass its wholesale prices along to consumers- with no mark-up. MailMyPrescriptions.com™ charges a low, $5 monthly membership that enables families can get the same medications dispensed by local retail pharmacies at the same price that the pharmacy pays their wholesale distributor, like Amerisource Bergen, for the medication. These prices are often hundreds of dollars less than the list price charged to consumers who have limited to no insurance coverage.
AmerisourceBergen beat out other competitors after a 6-month long bidding process for the MailMyPrescriptions.com™ contract. "We felt after recent news regarding independent pharmacies that are contracted with other providers being unable to purchase the generic epi-pen through them, that AmerisourceBergen best fits our mission of giving Americans access to affordable prescription medication and we look forward to working with them over the next few years," said Santo J. Leo.
