8:38 am
pharmacies. >> are you able to offer a cheaper price on pharmaceuticals because you're cutting the overhead, you're buying in bulk? that is always one the suggestions that the government which is the largest buyer of pharmaceuticals in the company because of veterans affairs and medicare and medicaid they should negotiate lower prices. how are you getting lower prize? >> we have offering a small swath of the entire population today. so the -- >> what is swath is that? >> on percentage basis it's probably less than 5% of the population. so the ceos of the largest companies in the country are getting access today to the blink price but in order to do that they have to pay for extremely expensive platinum insurance to get access to those prices. what we figured out how to do is by grouping people together, sort of we are the collective voice for consumers, if you think about in health care no one who represents the consumers in health care. what our organization does is pool consumers together use technology and we give them a huge collective voice and give
