VANCOUVER, April 15, 2020 /CNW/ - PocketPIlls, Canada's first full-service digital pharmacy, today announced a strategic partnership with myHSA, an employee benefits platform distributed through advisors, MGAs, TPAs, and insurance providers. The partnership will bring online access to medication to myHSA's 10,000+ Canadian employer and advisor clients.
"During these unprecedented times, it's more important than ever for Canadians to have easy access to medication, without ever needing to leave their homes," said Harj Samra, Co-Founder of PocketPills. "We're thrilled to be partnering with myHSA to provide their network with doorstep delivery of medication and virtual access to pharmacists."
The first-of-its-kind integration will allow myHSA plan sponsors and their members to fill their prescriptions through PocketPills, and for the first time, benefit from direct billing to their health spending account instead of submitting a receipt for reimbursement. The partnership gives plan sponsors and members the unprecedented ability to receive online access to medication, without worrying about billing.
"This new strategic partnership with PocketPills will enhance both the digital experience and accessibility to health care for our plan members, by allowing them to alleviate trips to the pharmacy and receive medicine delivered to their door without "paying out of pocket," said Tim Kane, CEO of myHSA. "PocketPills is truly a leap forward in the benefits world, especially given our current climate."
