Is Blink Health the Cure for High Prescription Drug Costs?

Blink LogoBlink Health is doing what Medicare hasn't been able to do. It negotiates prices directly with pharmaceutical companies so it can pass along deeper discounts to the consumer. If you search on their website, a 30-day supply for 40mg of Prilosec will cost you just $9.92 and a 90-day supply of sildenafil is $62.

How it works? You find your prescription online and pay in advance. Then, you print out a voucher to take to your pharmacy for pick-up. Blink Health partners with more than 57,000 pharmacies nationwide, including CVS, Kroger, Walmart and Rite-Aid.
