Honeybee Health is an online pharmacy that is revolutionizing the way that people get their prescription medicine. By cutting out middlemen and not taking insurance, Honeybee Health is providing a much-needed solution to the many problems with today’s chain pharmacies.
In the United States, 9 out of 10 prescriptions are for generic drugs, yet the enormous markup on these drugs means that many customers who show up at their local pharmacies leave empty-handed. Without insurance, some medications become nearly unobtainable. Even with insurance, many customers find that copays only put a small dent in a large bill.
But there are other problems with chain pharmacies as well. Much of the time, a trip to the pharmacy is a frustrating experience. Long lines turn what would usually be a quick errand into a time-consuming chore.
What’s more, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to reevaluate public gatherings. Even with social distancing, people who already have vulnerable immune systems are understandably wary of standing in line at a crowded pharmacy.
Honeybee Health tackles each of these issues head-on with an online pharmacy that makes purchasing prescription drugs more affordable and convenient than ever.
Real Pharmacists, Real Solutions
After constantly seeing people faced with the decision to purchase their prescription meds or put food on the table, co-founders Dr. Jessica Nouhavandi and Peter Wang knew that the pharmaceutical industry desperately needed to change.
In 2017, the two launched a small startup in Culver City, California that quickly became Honeybee Health—a company started by real pharmacists who prioritize patients over profits.
Today, the company has a full team of licensed pharmacists and technicians, and serves 44 different states and territories.
Honeybee Health has been named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies and one of Fortune’s Best Places to Work in Health Care & Biopharma.
A New Way to Get Your Prescription Meds
The Honeybee online pharmacy is home to over 6,000 different prescription medications and the company allows you to order them in only three simple steps.
First, visit the company’s website and search for the prescription drug you need. After finding your medication and placing an order, your work ends; Honeybee will take over, getting your prescription and confirming your order.
Finally, your medication or supplement will be shipped directly to your doorstep and a representative from Honeybee’s outstanding customer support team will follow up with you.
How Much Does It Cost?
When you order your prescription meds through Honeybee, you can expect to pay a fraction of what you might pay at a brick-and-mortar pharmacy—regardless of whether or not you have health insurance.
The secret to Honeybee Health’s low drug prices is little more than transparency and a customer-first approach. By cutting out the middlemen, such as insurance companies and pharmacy benefit managers, Honeybee customers save up to 80% of the typical cost at chain pharmacies.
The company buys directly from FDA-approved, U.S. wholesalers—meaning that whenever you purchase medication through Honeybee Health, you can be sure that you’re not only getting it from a trusted source but also for a fair price.
