GoodRx, a leader in the market for affordable and convenient health care, announced the launch of GoodRx Care, powered by HeyDoctor. As of September 26, 2019, consumers in the U.S. can conduct an online medical visit with a board-certified medical professional to get fast and easy treatment, prescriptions, and lab tests for routine medical issues. This new service is a result of GoodRx’s recent acquisition of HeyDoctor, the leading physician-founded provider organization of online medical services.
As health care costs continue to rise and many insurance plans cover fewer services than they did a year ago, consumers need affordable options for their routine health needs. With the introduction of GoodRx Care, consumers now have easy access to a network of qualified medical professionals so they can get the treatment they need, when they need it.
GoodRx Care connects consumers with or without insurance to board-certified physicians who provide an array of primary care services, including lab testing, refills of preventive and chronic medications, and treatment for acute medical conditions. These services include birth control, smoking cessation, erectile dysfunction, urinary tract infections, and more. Most visits are just $20 (lab tests require additional fees). When consumers are prescribed a medication by a clinical professional through GoodRx Care, GoodRx will provide pharmacy discounts for the lowest prices available. GoodRx does not sell any medications itself.
GoodRx is the country’s leading marketplace for affordable and convenient healthcare. The company offers the most comprehensive and accurate resource for prescription medications in the U.S., gathering pricing information from thousands of pharmacies coast to coast. More than 10 million consumers use GoodRx each month to find current prices and discounts for their medications. Since 2011, Americans with and without health insurance have saved more than $14 billion using GoodRx – more than $5 billion in 2019 alone.
HeyDoctor believes everyone deserves affordable, high-quality health care. HeyDoctor is building a new health care experience that connects consumers and provider organizations in a way that is delightful and simple. Consumers can get medical care online for a variety of services and chat with a doctor about your health care goals. HeyDoctor, along with partner health systems, want to be the first stop for health care online.
