Medtipster, a Search Engine With a National Database of Generic Drugs on Discount Programs That Allows Visitors to Search by Zip Code, by Lowest Price, is Now Out of Beta
Date:5/20/2009

TROY, Mich., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- In an economic environment in which all Americans are trying to save money, and more than 40 million Americans were prevented from filling critical prescriptions due to healthcare costs in 2008 alone, Medtipster was created to offer a solution.

Medtipster (www.medtipster.com) has launched a newly revamped version of their online healthcare search engine and generic prescription drug price comparator. Now out of its beta testing phase, new updates to medtipster.com include simplified search functionality; the ability to search by dosage on the home page; information on where consumers can find mini clinics, and receive immunizations and flu shots locally; and greater breadth and clarity of information in the search process and results.

"We are continuously updating and improving the Medtipster website to provide American consumers with the most user-friendly and comprehensive resource possible," said Bruce Liebowitz, Chief Operating Officer for Medtipster. "Because the vast majority of medical conditions can be treated with one of the drugs included on the discount generic drug programs available on Medtipster, the site is an invaluable tool for all Americans to significantly cut their healthcare costs."

By typing in their drug, dosage and zip code on medtipster.com, Medtipster will search for pharmacies that carry the generic equivalent at a discount, often for $4 or less. If the visitor's medication is available at a discount, Medtipster will show them a list of pharmacies with pricing, starting with those closest to them. If not, they will immediately be given the option to be notified via email when the drug is added to a list, or to search for a therapeutic alternative for the medication.

Future releases of medtipster.com will include pharmacy directions, consumer alerts on generic availability and pricing, a "bundled" medication search and access to healthcare-related membership programs, mobile applications, and more.
