Medicure Inc. (“Medicure” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MPH) (OTC: MCUJF), a company focused on the development and commercialization of pharmaceuticals and healthcare products for patients and prescribers in the United States market, is pleased to announce that it has launched its national direct-to-consumer E-Commerce pharmacy platform – www.marleydrug.com through its subsidiary, Marley Drug® pharmacy.
For more than 100 million Americans who do not have prescription drug coverage getting better and staying healthy can often depend on access to affordable medications.
“Many hard-working Americans are now having to choose between their medicine and other basic necessities,” said Albert D. Friesen, PhD, Chief Executive Officer of Medicure and Chair of its Board of Directors. “This is a choice no American should ever have to make.”
Marley Drug’s new E-Commerce website is a platform where FDA approved medications can be purchased at discount prices by Americans for home delivery in all 50 States. Additionally, the platform enables a client to store their medication and ordering history, as well as that of their family, and reorder medications or request refills all within the comfort of their home. The platform focuses on ease-of-use, health and wellness resources and a U.S. based pharmacy team dedicated to providing a pleasant customer experience. Through the combination of technology, an ever-expanding portfolio of medications, and superior customer service, the E-commerce platform is designed to meet the evolving needs of Americans and strengthen our existing lines of business which include Medicure’s primary care drug, ZYPITAMAG® and future branded products.
In addition to the typical 30- and 90-day fill of medications, the platform offers customers the ability to acquire extended supply fills of 6 and 12 months. For chronic care medications, 6 and 12 month quantities could increase patient adherence and lead to better management of medical conditions. Additional benefits include fewer pharmacy visits, less frequent refills and overall reduced cost. Marley Drug provides over 100 chronic care medications at $37 for 6 months and $70 for 12 months with free delivery anywhere in the United States and some territories. During the launch period, certain medications will be available at just $2 per month with free shipping for new customers.
“We look forward to growing the E-Commerce platform and significantly increasing the affordability of health care for all Americans and enhancing shareholder value”, said Dr. Friesen.
