(Atlanta, GA, August 7, 2023) InovCares has announced it has entered a new relationship with Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company, PBC (Cost Plus Drugs). This new collaboration combines InovCares' revolutionary virtual OB-GYN services, guiding women of color through fertility, childbirth, breastfeeding, mental health, and other health needs, with the ability to offer reduced-cost prescription medications through Cost Plus Drugs. Mohamed Kamara, CEO and Founder of InovCares, says, "We believe that every woman of color, regardless of her background, deserves access to affordable healthcare, especially when it comes to essential prescription medications. The rising cost of prescription medications has disproportionately affected communities of color, including black maternity care. At InovCares, we are proud to join forces with Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company to ensure that cost doesn't become a barrier to receiving the care they deserve."
Cost Plus Drugs was created on a foundational belief that every American should have access to safe, affordable medicines. The company's goal is to dramatically reduce the cost of medications and introduce greater transparency into how they are priced. "We are excited to work with InovCares to bring lower prescription drug prices to women and their families," said Alex Oshmyansky, CEO of Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company. "Cost Plus Drugs and InovCares share the goal of providing women and their families the lowest possible price for their prescription medication. With Cost Plus Drugs, women and their families can be confident they are getting a fair price and the convenience of medication mailed directly to their homes."
