Blue Mint Pharmacy hunts for HME

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

HOUSTON - Blue Mint Pharmacy, a four-year-old online pharmacy, has added home medical equipment to its services to grow its customer base, it announced Nov. 29. It will not carry an inventory of HME but act as a “personal bargain hunter,” taking inquiries for specific equipment and searching across the country for the lowest available price. The company already uses this strategy for pet medications. “There is a need for affordable home medical equipment,” said CEO TJ Blackwell. “We want to make sure Americans can pay for and bring home the supplies they need to recover quickly from health events and enjoy a high quality of life with chronic conditions.” Blue Mint Pharmacy is a locally owned, full-service, independent pharmacy based in Houston. It specializes in retail and customized, compounded medications, and accepts most major insurance prescription plans.
