Mark Cuban Rumors
A new Dallas-based generic drug company emerged from stealth mode last week and it’s got Dallas billionaire Mark Cuban’s name all over it. The startup is called Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company, and its website pledges to provide low-cost versions of high-cost generic drugs with “radical transparency” about how it prices its drugs.
The startup, which Cuban hopes will shake up the health care industry, has stayed largely out of the public eye until recently when the Dallas Mavericks owner discussed it on The Verge’s Decoder podcast in November. “There’s still hookworm epidemics in Alabama and Texas and other places,” Cuban said on the podcast. He also mentioned that he’s working on turning a building he owns in Dallas into a plant that would manufacture pharmaceuticals, including insulin.
