As healthcare continues to become an increasingly overwhelming financial burden for Americans, Medtipster provides consumers with a single, easy-to-use resource to find prescription drugs available on discount generic programs, right in their own neighborhoods.
TROY, Mich., April 8, 2009 – Medtipster (www.medtipster.com) has launched a newly revamped version of their online healthcare search engine and price comparator to further provide Americans with substantial savings on their healthcare costs. Now out of its beta testing phase, new updates to medtipster.com include simplified search functionality; the ability to search by dosage on the home page; information on where consumers can find mini-clinics, and receive immunizations and flu shots locally; and greater breadth and clarity of information in the search process and results.
If the prescription drug the visitor searches for is not available on a discount generic program, they will immediately be given the option to be notified via email when the drug is added to a list, or to search for a therapeutic alternative for the medication. Therapeutic alternatives have similar benefits to the prescribed drug, but are different in composition. These alternatives do require a new prescription, but as many are available on discount generic drug programs, they provide substantial savings to consumers.
“We are continuously updating and improving the Medtipster website to provide American consumers with the most user-friendly and comprehensive resource possible,” said Bruce Liebowitz, Chief Operating Officer for Medtipster. “Because the vast majority of medical conditions can be treated with one of the drugs included on the discount generic drug programs available on Medtipster, the site is an invaluable tool for all Americans to significantly cut their healthcare costs.”
Using Medtipster’s proprietary technology, consumers simply type in their drug name, dosage and zip code, and instantly find prescription drugs available on discount generic programs, and where they can find them right in their own neighborhoods. Many of these drugs are available for $4 or less.
Future releases will provide comparisons of vision and dental plans, gender-specific health issues, pet med searches, and much more. Medtipster’s mobile application, to be released shortly, will allow users to access the site’s critical information using their mobile phones, even before they leave their doctor’s office, saving them the cost and time required for return visits and calls to modify prescriptions.
