HealthWarehouse.com Partners with Health Care Access Now to Assist Underserved Cincinnati Residents With Medications

August 2, 2010

CINCINNATI, Aug. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — HealthWarehouse.com, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: HEWAD), a leading retail mail-order pharmacy and Health Care Access Now, a nonprofit Ohio corporation established to improve access and delivery of healthcare for Greater Cincinnati’s underserved populations, have partnered to provide an affordable prescription program allowing people in need the ability to purchase 300 medications for $3.50 with delivery to their home or apartment.

The partnership will target 20 counties in Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeastern Indiana, with a combined population of 2.2 million people. Health Care Access Now estimates that approximately 11% of Greater Cincinnati’s population does not have access to a regular healthcare provider and lack affordable options for their medications.

Like many areas in the United States, over the last 24 months Cincinnati has seen an increase in the number of individuals who have lost health insurance benefits or can no longer afford co-pays for medications. HealthWarehouse intends to make prescription and over-the-counter medications available to Greater Cincinnati residents through a variety of care coordination community-based healthcare providers. The partnership will allow patients who previously could not afford their medications the ability to be more compliant with their doctor’s orders and live a better quality of life.

“By partnering with Health Care Access Now, an organization that is committed to providing healthcare to the underserved, HealthWarehouse will have an immediate impact in the community by providing affordable medications for those most in need,” said HealthWarehouse.com CEO Lalit Dhadphale. “Nonprofit health providers are always in need of support and this partnership supports our mutual goal of expanding resources to serve more communities, says, Judith Warren, Executive Director of HCAN. Health Care Access Now and its partners are patient-focused, an ideal shared with HealthWarehouse.”
