Marley Drug brings better health to those who need it most

Several healthcare insurance factors drive patients
to use direct pay options for their prescriptions:

High deductibles

40% of people with private insurance were reported to be on high deductible plans.1

Read more about how Marley Drug helps with high deductible plans.


In 2020, 8.6 percent of people, or 28.0 million, did not have health insurance at any point during the year.2

High cost-share

Drug benefit plans typically require a patient to pay a certain amount out-of-pocket for their prescription drugs. Higher 'tier' drugs increasingly use a percentage of drug cost to determine a patient's cost share.

Coverage gap

Most Medicare drug plans have a coverage gap (also called the "donut hole"), with most patients reaching their coverage limits well before the year ends.

Non-covered or non-preferred

Many Americans report that their insurance plans sometimes don't cover a drug they need - and nearly half the people whom this happens to say they simply don't fill the prescription.3


We remove the intermediaries.

The list of drugs, or formularies, an insurer covers is decided by pharmacy benefit managers, or PBMs. PBMs are companies that manage prescription drug benefits on behalf of health insurers, Medicare Part D drug plans, large employers, and other payers.

PBMs are an important player in the pharmaceutical supply chain network and have a significant impact in determining total drug costs for insurers and shaping patients' access to medications.

Our acquisition of Marley Drug allows us to adopt a direct-to-pharmacy distribution model and reduce the number of intermediaries, such as PBMs.

By streamlining the supply chain and cutting out the middleman, we can deliver significant cost savings to patients, whilst retaining profit levels and market share.
