CINCINNATI, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthWarehouse.com, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: HEWA), a leading VIPPS accredited retail mail-order pharmacy, announced today that John Backus, managing partner of New Atlantic Ventures, will join HealthWarehouse.com's Board of Directors.
"Health insurance costs may be skyrocketing, but innovative businesses like HealthWarehouse.com are driving health care costs down for every day consumers," said John Backus, managing partner, New Atlantic Ventures. "Most Americans are overpaying for prescription drugs at the big chain pharmacies. A $15+ co-pay for a generic prescription drug is more likely to be a rip-off for the customer rather than a bargain. HealthWarehouse sells over 1000 generic prescription drugs - the exact same FDA certified medicine found in the big chains - for less than the price of most insurance co-pays. They post their prices online for everyone to see and compare."
"I am extremely pleased to have John join the Company's Board. John has deep business knowledge that will help take HealthWarehouse.com to the next level," said Lalit Dhadphale, co-founder, president and CEO of HealthWarehouse.com. "He has a wealth of experience that will help HealthWarehouse.com continue its growth and success."
"We are appreciative of what departing Board member, Norman Corn, has contributed to the Company's success over the past two years," added Dhadphale. "He has been a valuable Board member and we are thankful for his time and dedication."
John Backus is a seasoned technology investor, entrepreneur and policy advocate with more than 25 years of experience investing in and managing emerging, high-growth com
