Medicure Announces a Direct to Patient Online Pharmacy Program for
Distribution of ZYPITAMAG™ (Pitavastatin) Tablets
WINNIPEG, MB, June 25, 2020 /CNW/ - Medicure Inc.
("Medicure" or the "Company") (TSXV:MPH),
(OTC:MCUJF), a pharmaceutical company, is pleased to announce the
launch of a direct to patient online pharmacy program for the
distribution of ZYPITAMAGTM in the United States.
This program offers many advantages to Medicure to facilitate an
increase in patient access to ZYPITAMAGTM for patients
who hold a prescription, which includes direct shipment of the
product to a patient's home at no cost, the processing of prior
authorizations, and direct to patient refill reminders. Ultimately,
marketing and distribution of ZYPITAMAGTM through this
program will provide reduced costs to the patient, including no
retail pharmacy filling fees, and increase the availability of the
product to consumers. It also provides a seamless process for
physicians and prescribers, and reduces their workload by
processing any prior authorization.
"We are excited to kickoff this online program to increase patient
access to ZYPITAMAGTM across the United States and
reduce one of the impediments to the growth of the product"
commented Medicure's CEO, Dr. Albert D. Friesen. "We look
forward to growing the ZYPITAMAGTM brand as part of our
portfolio of cardiovascular products."
