and Prescription Assistance iPhone and Android Application Targeting
Medical Dispensaries and Pharmacies in Michigan and California 
Company Also Provides Additional Updates to Shareholders on 800
Commerce S-1 Status and Michigan Headquarters 
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 --  MediSwipe Inc.
(www.MediSwipe.com) (OTCQB: MWIP), a patient security solutions and
financial products company for the health care industry, announced
today that the Company has launched "GetRx" Mobile in cooperation
with 800 Commerce Inc. The new mobile texting application for iPhones
and Androids allows doctor appointment setting and prescription
assistance for medical dispensaries and pharmacies located throughout
the states of Michigan and California with additional states to be
added to the platform over the next few weeks. The free consumer
health care app enables patients who suffer from diseases including
glaucoma, nausea, cancer, migraines, Crohn's disease, MS, and
numerous other illnesses access doctors by zip code, and allows them
to make an appointment, confirm time and receive access to medical
care and prescriptions all through the GetRx application.  
The GetRx mobile app from MediSwipe requires no download, no lengthy
browsing of websites, or charges from directory assistance. Users
simply text MY800 or "69800" with the key word "DOCTOR" in the
subject line, choose their state, time of preference and receive
choices of recommended doctors in those regulated jurisdictions.  
MediSwipe will receive up to $20.00 as an appointment setting fee
from each participating physician on the GetRx application as well as
text messaging fees for prescription alerts and appointment reminders
from participating physicians within regulated jurisdictions. 
"Now more than ever, patients want increased access to medical
providers. The mobile appointment request feature on GetRx allows
qualified patients in legal jurisdictions to quickly and conveniently
request an appointment with licensed physicians directly from the
application, and receive an immediate response. More people are
relying on their smartphones for information 24/7, and MediSwipe is
committed to providing innovative solutions and resources to better
manage their health care," stated B. Michael Freidman. "The GetRx
appointment setting tool will provide a valuable service to new
patients in legal jurisdictions seeking information on how to find a
certified physician to write a medicinal prescription, filing
paperwork and fees with the states to receive a patient id card, and
locating a reliable and recommended pharmacy or dispensary when they
have an immediate medical need," further stated Freidman.  
With regard to the S-1 filing of 800 Commerce, it is anticipated that
the response to the second round of comments with the SEC will be
filed within the next five days. Once we have approval to do so, we
will at that time set the record date for all shareholders of record
of MediSwipe to receive the dividend share as a result of the
distribution of the 800 Commerce shares we own. We are pleased to
state that 800 Commerce continues to post record numbers in revenues
and we expect to exceed one-hundred million in gross processing
volume in 2013 through existing accounts. This number excludes what
we expect from our directory portals my800doctor.com and our new
launch of my800lawyer.com in March 2013.  
"Lastly, I would like to thank our shareholders for their support and
confidence in management and the further execution of our short and
long-term business plan. I would also like to mention our new
corporate headquarters office address in Michigan which is now: 
Columbia Center II
 101 West Big Beaver Road
 14th Floor
 Troy, MI
48084 
(248) 262-6850

stated, Freidman.
