Companies join forces to offer at-home access to affordable testing and prescription medications for millions of Americans

BOSTON, MA – April 24, 2023 (GLOBENEWSWIRE) – binx health, a healthcare technology and diagnostics company focused on making routine testing convenient, and the Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company, PBC (Cost Plus Drugs) are collaborating to increase access to affordable healthcare and necessary medications for patients across the nation. Together, the companies aim to reduce healthcare disparities and inequities. binx health offers online access to testing to diagnose common conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Through this collaboration, patients can access testing through binx health’s digital platform, binx everywhere, and receive affordable medication through Cost Plus Drugs online prescription program.

“We are excited to work with binx health to bring lower prescription drug prices to consumers,” said Alex Oshmyansky, CEO of Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company. “Cost Plus Drugs and binx health share a common goal of providing consumers the lowest possible price for their prescription medication. With Cost Plus Drugs, consumers can be confident they are getting a fair price and the convenience of medication mailed directly to their homes."

For many patients, accessing affordable prescription medications is just one piece of the puzzle. Without access to a physician and lab-quality testing, the high cost of misdiagnosis and lack of necessary treatment remains a major problem for the U.S. healthcare system. This is a critical gap in care, given that 70% of medical decisions today depend on laboratory test results.1 binx health is working to bridge this gap by providing patients with convenient diagnostic testing for those who are uninsured or underinsured, supporting the goal that all patients have the resources they need to manage their health effectively. This collaboration is a commitment to making healthcare more accessible for all and addressing a critical need in the market.

"Our mission has always been and continues to be increasing access to necessary care for all. By promoting the Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company, we are taking that mission to the next level, providing patients with convenient diagnostic testing necessary to receive their medications,” said Abby Wright, Vice President of Business Development and Market Access at binx health. “We believe that every patient deserves the highest level of care, regardless of their background, circumstance, geographical location, and coverage status. We are excited to work together to address physical, and emotional barriers, for patients everywhere.”

The binx everywhere digital access engine and logistics platform is pioneering this end-to-end collaboration ensuring patients receive the care they need, without the high costs of prescription medication, in a location that is convenient for them.
