TAMPA, Fla. — TRxADE Health’s Bonum Health unit has signed a Telemedicine Service Distribution Deal with Southeastern Grocers Inc., which operates Winn-Dixie, Harveys Supermarket and Fresco y Más grocery stores in Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia and Mississippi.
Bonum Health will provide affordable telemedicine services and prescription discount savings to the patients of all Winn-Dixie, Harveys and Fresco y Más retail stores and pharmacies, the company said. The service will be offered through its signature Mobile Health Services application and prescriber program, which is staffed by over 600 board-certified medical providers. The partnership also provides Winn-Dixie patients with direct access to prescription discount savings through Bonum Health signature telemedicine application, which can be downloaded from both the Google Play and App Store.
According to Becker’s Hospital Review, in 2020, approximately 5.4 million Americans lost their health insurance between February-May 2020 due to Covid-19 related lay-offs or job losses. This is a disturbing trend across America where the total number of uninsured has climbed to 21%. In the states that Winn-Dixie serves customers, the uninsured totals represent an average of 21% of all consumers.
“Our strategic partnership with Bonum Health provides a fully integrated, deeply discounted and patient-ready digital healthcare solution that gives eligible customers access to a Board-Certified Medical Provider,” said Gayle Shields, Vice President of Pharmacy for Southeastern Grocers. “Bonum Health will help us diversify our in-store and community digital healthcare services as we offer deeply discounted telemedicine, with a combined prescription savings program designed into the same platform.”
Ashton Maaraba, President of Bonum Health noted, “We are proud to support the Winn-Dixie, Harvey’s and Fresco y Más retail store and pharmacy community. Winn-Dixie is committed to promoting low-cost, turn-key, and innovative digital healthcare services across its consumer market. In working with Winn-Dixie, we plan on driving a seamless, deeply discounted, and easily accessible digital health and wellness strategy. Our healthcare platform, medical providers, proprietary AI tools, and resources not only offer fast and easy access to “live” virtual interactions with Board-Certified Medical Providers, but Winn-Dixie patients can also receive up to 80% savings on prescriptions.”
