Rx Safes Announces Retail Distribution Through CVS Health

New Rx DrugSAFE Now Available Online Through CVS.COM

HENDERSON, NV--(Marketwired - Oct 20, 2015) - Rx Safes, Inc. (OTC PINK: RXSF), the developer of autonomous fingerprint healthcare security products announced today that its flagship consumer product, the Rx DrugSAFE, is now part of CVS Health's national online offerings.

The new Rx DrugSAFE is now available at CVS.com. "The Rx DrugSAFE, the company's flagship consumer based product, has been the first choice of medical professionals for years because it's a real metal safe, secured by our autonomous fingerprint technology, so it only opens after it recognizes its authorized user," said Lorraine Yarde, CEO of Rx Safes, Inc. The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) and Purdue Pharma, the leading manufacturer of Oxycontin pain medications, have used the Rx DrugSAFE in nationally released PSA's to demonstrate the need of locking up prescription drugs at home. CVS Health is now incorporating the new Rx DrugSAFE in its national online offering.

The new Rx DrugSAFE has gone through technology, structural and security updates that now include added levels of personal security to make sure drugs and medicines are securely locked up at home. As part of the new online offering by CVS Health, Rx Safes is making the Rx DrugSAFE more affordable for families by offering a manufacturers rebate program and special pricing through CVS Health.

"There is a real national epidemic of toddlers and teenagers accessing prescription drugs at home because parents do not lock up their medications. The medicine cabinet has become our nation's most dangerous drug dealer and a simple way to prevent a catastrophe for your family is to lock up your medications with an Rx DrugSAFE," noted Dr. Mary Ellen Renna, a nationally acclaimed pediatrician, Fox News medical commentator, author and company spokesperson. "This is why I have been working with Rx Safes to get the word out. As a pediatrician, I have seen far too many avoidable accidental poisoning and overdoses that could simply have been prevented by this product."

CVS Health is a great partner because it recognizes the Rx DrugSAFE as a real tool for families to fight against prescription drug misuse and abuse. With more than 7800 stores in North America and retail pharmacy sales exceeding $16.7 billion in 2014, CVS Health is one of the country's leading pharmacies. The CVS Health Pharmacists know their customers and play a very important role in their health care. The Rx DrugSAFE is now stocked and available and can be ordered directly at:

About 2500 kids a day experiment with prescription drugs for the first time, and 70% of them say they get these drugs from the home medicine cabinet. The prescription drug epidemic hits home hard and families suffer tremendously unnecessarily when simply locking up your medications could reduce drug abuse and drug addiction substantially. CVS Health and Rx Safes, Inc. would like you to join the fight by locking up your medications in a real safe, the Rx DrugSAFE.
