At Medly, we believe in care that is both convenient and tech-forward – care you don’t have to wait in line for. It’s for that reason that we’ve partnered with Talkspace, a virtual platform that connects patients with licensed mental health professionals.
Through our partnership with Talkspace, we plan to expand mental health access across New York City while leveraging technology to enable patients to easily purchase their prescriptions on our digital platform, connect virtually with a pharmacist in a dozen languages, and have their medications delivered for free directly to their doorsteps.
The pandemic took a major toll on America’s mental health, with nearly one-third of adults reporting symptoms of anxiety or depression. Nevertheless, 24% of individuals with a mental illness do not get sufficient treatment, as prescription medication can be expensive and many lack access to a nearby pharmacy where they can pick up their prescriptions.
Our partnership with Talkspace aims to combat this disparity, by leveraging technology to allow for medication delivery across New York City. Those seeking mental health care through Talkspace’s online platform will also be able to manage any psychiatric medication online and select for same-day delivery on Medly’s platform, overcoming the barrier of pharmacy access and making mental healthcare easier and more convenient.
“We are honored to work with Talkspace to help New Yorkers get the medication they need to take care of their mental health. There are already so many obstacles to mental healthcare, from the social stigma to the cost of care. Accessing a pharmacy shouldn’t be another barrier. With this partnership, we will deliver prescription drugs to patients’ homes, ensuring that patients will be able to access the mental healthcare they need, regardless of whether they live near a brick-and-mortar pharmacy.” – CEO and Cofounder of Medly, Dr. Marg Patel.
We accept all insurance plans, including commercial, Medicare, and Medicaid to ensure that patients can afford their prescriptions. With Talkspace’s commitment to expanding mental healthcare access, we ensure that patients will be able to afford their prescriptions.
