UnitedHealth Reportedly Moves to Buy PillPack Competitor

More than two years after Amazon Inc. unveiled its plan to acquire PillPack, which specializes in pre-sorted dose packaging and home delivery of prescription drugs (RDB 7/13/18, p. 1), UnitedHealth Group has reportedly purchased a very similar startup.

CNBC reported on Sept. 29 that UnitedHealth bought the firm, divvyDOSE, for just over $300 million, citing a person familiar with the deal. UnitedHealth declined to comment about the transaction to either CNBC or AIS Health when asked to confirm the news.
