As the COVID-19 crisis persists, there is speculation that the number of cases may spike again next winter leading into the cold and flu season of 2021. During these uncertain times our catalog programs ensure that members receive their essential OTC products without the need to leave home or risk having loved ones shop for them. We offer over 600 generic and brand-named products that are delivered quickly and discreetly to the members’ homes.

During these times, it’s imperative that people, especially those that are of higher risk for contracting the virus, are still able to receive their day to day OTC products while they continue to social distance. Not only do they treat illnesses, but many OTC products provide instant relief to sudden, unanticipated symptoms. OTC medicines have extended the reach of access to safe treatments of self-curable illnesses that might have otherwise required a physician visit. Our programs provide members with a sense of self control over their health and wellness. And the more control that members have over their health, the less they’ll have to rely on unnecessary physician visits, or even trips to the ER.

Our programs give members peace of mind, knowing that they will be able to receive essential OTC products while continuing to maintain social distancing. We work with Health Plans to design Benefit offerings from the ground up, giving them full customization capabilities to select anything from benefit amount and recharge frequency, to a hand-picked OTC product list. We currently offer over 500 name brand and generic products across more than 30 different CMS approved OTC categories. Once the plan is active, members are able to place to orders by mail, phone, or online. Orders are shipped within 7-10 businesses days, and members are receive important OTC products without having to leave their homes.
