SALT LAKE CITY, October 11,2017 — LowestMed, the nation’s first prescription price transparency search engine, has announced a partnership with SaludMóvil, a digital health information platform dedicated to educating the diverse Hispanic community in the United States.
Hispanics in the United States are three times as likely to be uninsured than non-Hispanics. Through LowestMed’s partnership with SaludMóvil, Hispanics will not only get access to discounted prescription drug prices, but will also have peace of mind when it comes to saving money on healthcare, whether they are insured or uninsured.

“We feel that partnering with SaludMóvil is an important step in making sure the underserved Hispanic population is taken care of, when it comes to improving medication adherence by saving money on prescriptions,” said Brad Bangerter, CEO of LowestMed. “SaludMóvil is a key player in this movement and we are excited about what can be accomplished through this partnership.”
Studies show that 74 percent of physician office visits result in drug therapy and 3 out of 4 people surveyed by Consumer Reports said they took a at least one action to find a way to better afford their prescription treatment. With this partnership, LowestMed and SaludMóvil will be positioned to better educate the Hispanic community, when it comes to healthcare spending.
“There is a tremendous need to give Spanish-speaking consumers access to price comparisons at nearby pharmacies and provide them with coupons to purchase medications at a discounted price,” says Joseph Moquera, MD, founder of SaludMóvil. “We have seen widespread acceptance of tools like this among English-speaking consumers and we believe SaludMóvil fills an important gap for the Spanish-speaking population.”
LowestMed’s pharmacy apps power the drug look-up tools, featured on SaludMóvil, giving millions of Hispanic consumers better access to affordable prescriptions at major U.S. pharmacies.
LowestMed is fighting the battle against high prescription drug prices, by providing a way for consumers to know the cost of their prescriptions at local pharmacies. This enables them to effectively compare prices in a pharmacy near me approach, resulting in significant savings in both time and out-of-pocket costs. LowestMed’s suite of tools include a pill identifier, as well as mobile apps, available on the App Store and Google Play.
