Here’s an easy explanation.

When you’re used to paying a lot at the pharmacy counter, finding a new, much-lower price can be a little…confusing. We’ve had patients ask: How are these prices so low compared to what I normally pay? Are these medications safe? Is Blink Health even real?

We’ll answer those questions in order.

  1. We cut out the middleman and offer group-discount prices directly to individuals. We work directly with drug manufacturers and pharmacies to negotiate lower prices, and pass those lower prices onto our customers. (Learn more about why prescription drug prices are so high.)
  2. Yes. Medication you buy through Blink Health is the same FDA-approved medication available at your local pharmacy (in fact, you can choose to pick it up from an in-network pharmacy near you). Medications that Blink Health delivers to your home are shipped by a licensed and accredited US-based pharmacy partner that meets or exceeds strict quality and safety requirements established by the FDA.
  3. Yep, we’re real! Hear from real people who have saved money with Blink Health, then search your med(s) to see if you can save, too.

Blink Health is not insurance. The discount prescription drug provider is Blink Health Administration, LLC, 536 Broadway, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10012, (844) 366–2211, www.blinkhealth.com
