Bonum Health will provide affordable telemedicine services and prescription discount savings to the patients of all Winn-Dixie, Harveys and Fresco y Más retail stores and pharmacies by offering Bonum Health’s signature Mobile Health Services application and prescriber program, staffed by over 600 board-certified medical providers.
