MIAMI, Feb. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB: RXMD), a personalized healthcare services and technology company, today announced that it has garnered media coverage in Insider Financial and Cannabis Radio Show as one of the top plays for investors looking to make money off the opioid crisis in the U.S. and using alternative medicine to combat the crisis.
“I am honored to be recognized in Insider Financial and Cannabis Talk A to Z regarding the opioid crisis, something I am so passionate about fighting,” said S. Parikh Mars, CEO of Progressive Care Inc. “Progressive Care strives to put patients first by offering the best alternatives to opioid medications and by making the process to attain these medicines seamless and affordable.”
In an article titled Progressive Care Inc (OTCMKTS:RXMD): A Top Play on Opioid Crisis, published on January 14, 2019, Insider Financial discussed how Progressive Care is in an ongoing fight for non-opioid treatments for pain to be routinely covered by insurance. Today, insurance companies are restricting benefits to the point where a patient can no longer get coverage for outpatient pain management solutions other than prescription grade ibuprofen, or Tylenol.
In the radio show titled Cannabis Talk A to Z with Guest Shital Mars, Mars discussed how there are other treatments available to address pain, one with the most potential and importance being CBD, however doctors and pharmacies alike are not providing their patients with any guidance on proper dosage or methods making patients seek is out themselves. Mars and Progressive Care believes that the end goal is for medical marijuana, both THC and CBD, to be provided by a pharmacy and health care providers so that patients can safely use cannabis to address their needs in combination with their other prescribed medications.
The recent media coverage comes after the company’s efforts to provide its network with more healthcare informational resources through PharmCo Pharmacy. Additional commentary from Progressive Care’s CEO about the company and industry as a whole can be found on the Progressive Care blog and PharmCo blog.
