UBERDOC, Inc. Teams Up with Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company, PBC to Expand Access to Direct-Pay Prescriptions
The UBERDOC and Cost Plus Drugs relationship provides consumers and employers greater access and transparency to prescriptions by engaging through doctors at the point of care.
Boston, MA — January 24, 2023
UBERDOC, Inc., a digital healthcare platform that connects patients to top doctors for transparent prices, announced today it is teaming with Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company, PBC (Cost Plus Drugs) to offer consumers and businesses better access to affordable, cash pay medications through UBERDOC’s nationwide network of 4,000 doctors.
UBERDOC allows care seekers with any or no insurance to quickly book doctor’s appointments for a guaranteed price, without network restrictions or referrals. The platform currently hosts over 4,000 doctors that cover 50+ specialties from primary care to pediatric oncology, with over 20,000 available appointments every week. By using UBERDOC, the average care seeker is seen by a doctor 4 weeks faster and saves 20% on their out-of-pocket costs.
Cost Plus Drugs, launched in 2022 by its entrepreneurial namesake, is disrupting the pharmaceutical industry with transparent drug pricing and minimal markups and fees. The company charges consumers only 15% more than it pays to buy a drug from the manufacturer, along with a $3 per-prescription dispensing fee, and shipping.
Like Cost Plus Drugs, UBERDOC is disrupting the traditional healthcare system, by removing restrictions and hidden prices, through a transparent model that never requires a referral. Through its relationship with Cost Plus Drugs, UBERDOC is able to extend patient cost savings for their members beyond the visit with their doctor.
UBERDOC CEO and Founder Dr. Paula Muto views this as a critical synergy for delivering transparent, affordable care.

This alignment of mission makes the collaboration between Cost Plus Drugs and UBERDOC a valuable opportunity for the patients and doctors who need it most.
The collaboration between UBERDOC and Cost Plus Drugs puts a new tool in the hands of doctors who are increasingly asked to support patients’ financial needs, in addition to providing healthcare. Over 100 Million Americans currently struggle to afford healthcare and only 7% feel the healthcare they get is worth the cost. This relationship allows doctors to share affordable prices directly with patients, regardless of their insurance plan or status. UBERDOC’s network of doctors sees traditional insurance, Medicare, and uninsured patients, giving them the ability to offer Cost Plus Drugs’ prices to everyone regardless of their insurance status.
“We are excited to work with UBERDOC to bring lower prescription drug prices to consumers. Cost Plus Drugs and UBERDOC share a common goal of providing consumers with the lowest possible price for their prescription medication. With Cost Plus Drugs, consumers can be confident they are getting a fair price and the convenience of medication mailed directly to their homes.”
