In the rapidly evolving world of healthcare, telemedicine has become a beacon of convenience and discretion, especially for men seeking treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). The ED market has seen a surge in telemedicine startups, many of which offer end-to-end treatment (from prescription all the way through medication delivery).
Friday Plans, a recent entrant in the Generic Viagra market, is quickly gaining traction by breaking down barriers that previously hindered access to ED treatment. As Friday Plans points out, there are two primary barriers that prevent many men with ED from obtaining proper treatment:
The first barrier is the problem of access to healthcare. In the United States, the average wait time for a doctor appointment is 24 days. In-person doctor visits may also require patients to take time off of work and incur the cost of their health insurance co-payment—that is, if they have insurance, which many Americans do not.
The second barrier is the cost of the medication itself. Since most private health insurance plans do not cover ED medication, patients are forced to pay for the medication out-of-pocket. And ED medication does not come cheap; the retail price of 100 mg Generic Viagra, for example, ranges from $10 to $46 per tablet, depending on the pharmacy.
Friday Plans set out to eliminate these barriers. Friday Plans’ mission statement is, “to Make ED Treatment More Accessible, Affordable, and Easier Than Ever Before”, and so far they seem to be delivering on that promise. Friday Plans is not only winning customers from other pharmacies but also reaching those who had previously been unable to access or afford ED treatment.
What sets Friday Plans apart? The answer lies in its affordability. Unlike other pharmacies, where the cost of a tablet increases with dose strength, Friday Plans offers the same price regardless of dose. Even more astonishing, Friday Plans has capped their prices at $1.99 per tablet, far below the industry standard. And most customers pay even less due to available discounts—often as little as 87¢ per tablet! This innovative pricing model may be a key factor in Friday Plans’ burgeoning popularity.
Friday Plans also offers free online prescriptions from licensed physicians, if appropriate, and free 3-day shipping, ensuring that every man with ED can obtain the treatment he needs from the comfort of his own home.
Signing up for Friday Plans is simple:
- Free Online Consultation: Complete a 2-minute online medical questionnaire.
- Prescription Review: A doctor in the Friday Plans network reviews your questionnaire and writes a prescription if appropriate.
- Free Delivery: Upon approval, your medication is packaged discreetly and delivered within 3 days.
- Manage Your Treatment Online: Log into Friday Plans’ “Members’ Area” to edit your dose or quantity, request an early refill, or pause or cancel your subscription. Members can also message their prescribing doctor via the platform’s “Doctor Chat” feature, free of charge.
Generic Viagra is the most popular ED medication worldwide and has been clinically proven to work for 94% of ED patients.
Typical pharmacies offer dozens or even thousands of different medication options, which means complicated supply chains and bloated operating costs. So by offering only Generic Viagra, Friday Plans can achieve maximum operational efficiency, minimizing costs and passing the savings on to customers.
As noted later in this article, Friday Plans has recently announced plans to expand their offerings to include Generic Cialis. However, the company has reassured customers that prices will not increase as a result.
A common misconception is that generic medications are less effective than their branded counterparts. In truth, branded Viagra and Generic Viagra are equally effective, because both contain the active ingredient, Sildenafil, in equal amounts. The only difference is the price. Since Viagra’s patent expiration in 2020, the generic version has offered the same effectiveness as branded Viagra at a fraction of the cost.
Friday Plans’ Generic Viagra is sourced in bulk from an FDA-accredited pharmaceutical manufacturer, adhering to good manufacturing practices (GMP). This provides customers with confidence in the quality and reliability of the medication obtained through the Friday Plans platform.
Friday Plans has positioned itself as the ideal solution for men seeking ED treatment. With its competitive pricing and user-friendly experience, it’s shaping up to be the most cost-effective and convenient source for ED medication in 2023.
For those interested in exploring this service, Friday Plans’ medical questionnaire is accessible via any smartphone, tablet, or computer.
