RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 1, 2019 – Ortho Dermatologics, one of the largest prescription dermatology health care businesses, today announced that its parent company, Bausch Health Companies Inc. (NYSE/TSX: BHC) (“Bausch Health”), and Walgreens have made a modification to their existing fulfillment agreement to bring patients lower prices, increased transparency and convenience for many of Ortho Dermatologics’ dermatology products. Under the expanded agreement, Walgreens patients will have access to the select dermatology products included in Ortho Dermatologics’ first-of-its-kind cash-pay prescription program, Dermatology.com, at lower flat cash rates ranging from $50-$115. The program, which was first launched in March 2019, will be available at more than 9,500 Walgreens U.S. retail pharmacy locations by the end of August 2019.
“We launched Dermatology.com to provide patients with direct access to proven, branded dermatology medicines at predictable prices,” said Bill Humphries, president, Ortho Dermatologics. “Through this new expanded relationship with Walgreens, patients using the program will now have a nationwide pharmacy option that is not only welcoming and accessible, but will provide them with the confidence that the cost they discuss with their physician will be what they pay at the pharmacy. Together, we will continue to strive to deliver on our commitment to provide the best possible access and experience for patients who need these therapies.”
