HealthWarehouse.com Partners With MedLion to Bring Affordable Healthcare to Northern California
Date:2/16/2012

FLORENCE, Ky. and MONTEREY, Calif., Feb.16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthWarehouse.com, Inc. (OTC: HEWA), a leading VIPPS*-accredited retail mail-order pharmacy, and MedLion, Inc., a pioneering direct primary care practice in Northern California, have partnered to provide under-insured and uninsured people in the Bay Area, Central Coast and Fresno with discount prescription medications delivered free to their homes.

Nearly seven million Californians lacked health insurance in 2010, more than any other state, according to a study released in December 2011 by the California Healthcare Foundation. Twenty-four percent of working, non-elderly (age 65 and younger) Californians had no health insurance, four percent higher than the national average. The study also showed nearly one in five Californians with annual family incomes between $50,000-$75,000 lacked insurance.

"MedLion is doing what no other health care model does in California," said Founder and CEO Samir Qamar, M.D., who started MedLion in Monterey in 2009 and now has affiliate offices in Fresno, Mountain View, Oakland and San Francisco. "We close the gap between government-run, employer-sponsored and uncompensated charity care by offering affordable, high-quality, direct primary medical care without the hassle of traditional HMOs.  HealthWarehouse.com shares our mission on the prescription drug side.  We are delighted to be working together to change the healthcare system."

HealthWarehouse.com is a mail-order pharmacy that offers easy, low-cost access to a range of popular prescription drugs, all of which are approved by the FDA for sale in the U.S. When their patients need to fill prescriptions, MedLion physicians will start the process by sending prescriptions to HealthWarehouse.com, using e-prescription, fax, or phone. The patient follows up to provide billing information, which can be done online or via phone.  With free shipping, an order typically takes between two-to-nine days. 

"We share Dr. Qamar's vision of providing affordable healthcare to all, especially those who have been most affected during these tough times," said Lalit Dhadphale, co-founder and CEO of HealthWarehouse.com. "As more and more prescription drugs move to generics, we are able to provide a compelling, 50 to 70 percent cost savings over private insurance and government prescription drug plans.  We are delighted to partner with MedLion to deliver this comprehensive solution directly to the patient."
