SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, CakeHealth announced integration with GoodRx, a website and mobile application that help consumers find the lowest prices on prescription drugs. With the ePharma Summit West ending last week, the news couldn't come at a better time.
Recently, the healthcare manager unveiled Version 2.0 and has seen huge spikes in traffic. The startup is now focused on listening closely to their super users and shaping the product to address their needs.
"With rising health costs, our users are constantly searching for ways to save on healthcare. And while they can't shave costs on necessary surgery or exams, they can find deals on prescription drugs, saving them thousands of dollars in the long run," says Rebecca Woodcock, Founder and CEO of CakeHealth.
When a user logs into Cake, they can visit the Claims View to access the widget. After clicking on a pharmacy claim in their medical history, they will see the GoodRx tool at the bottom of their detailed view, ready to help them find the best prescription costs in their neighborhood. In the near future, the companies will integrate their products more deeply to provide consumers with quick feedback on their prescription drug purchases.
We're pleased to be partnering with CakeHealth," says Doug Hirsch, CEO of GoodRx. "We share a common goal of empowering consumers to make the best use of their healthcare dollar. This partnership is a big win for consumers."
In addition to GoodRx, the CakeHealth team is working on a number of strategic partnerships, as well as a few exciting features that cannot be disclosed at this time. The site currently supports Aetna, Anthem, Blue Shield of California, Cigna, Oxford, UnitedHealthcare, Delta Dental and VSP at this time, but will be serving additional insurance carriers in the near future.
CakeHealth is a free tool that helps users stay on top of their medical bills. The site makes it easy to understand your health costs, track your deductible and find ways to save. Founded in 2010, The CakeHealth site, fully encrypted, ensures security and privacy. The company launched to the public at TechCrunch Disrupt in September 2011 and is located in San Francisco, California. For more information or to sign up, visit www.cakehealth.com.
