Here's today's feel-good story:
Billionaire Mark Cuban has launched his newest venture: Cost Plus Drugs - an online pharmacy.
Cuban is looking to help Americans by shielding them from inflated drug prices. In a September 2021 Gallup poll, 18 million Americans reported not being able to pay for at least one prescription medication due to rising costs. 1 in 10 Americans have skipped doses to save money.
“We will do whatever it takes to get affordable pharmaceuticals to patients,” Alex Oshmyansky, CEO of Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug, said. “The markup on potentially lifesaving drugs that people depend on is a problem that can’t be ignored. It is imperative that we take action and help expand access to these medications for those who need them most.”
