"Most of my patients were extremely sick and were battling conditions such as HIV, hepatitis, arthritis, and cancer. I chose pharmacy because I wanted to give my time and care to those who needed it most."
Medmonk is based on the premise that it's in everyone's best interest for medications to be used regardless of price. Patients get the care and medications they need, insurers are protected against larger claims, and pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies get maximum use of their medications. Co-founder Somaira Punjwani, an HIV specialty pharmacist, had to invent a process as an alternative to turning away patients who struggled with their co-pay. She did this manually for over three years with overwhelming positive feedback from grateful patients who could now afford their medications.
