KonsultaMD Partners with MedGrocer for Door-To-Door Medicine Delivery
Healthcare hotline KonsultaMD has partnered with MedGrocer online pharmacy for door-to-door delivery of medicine and health supplements to ensure that its customers can have easy access to trusted drugs anytime they need it and wherever they may be.
“We continue to look for ways to provide the best services to our members that is why we partnered with MedGrocer. We want KonsultaMD to be a one-stop shop for their health needs. This way, they will be able to save on time, effort, and money – three pain points in the Philippine healthcare industry,” said Maridol Ylanan, CEO of Konsulta MD.
MedGrocer, the ordering and delivery service of FDA-licensed pharmacy WellBridge Health, provides medicines for allergies and asthma, cardiovascular ailments, cough and colds, diabetes, hypertension, infection, pain and fever, as well as vitamins and supplements.
As part of the partnership, KonsultaMD members get P200 worth of free medicine on their first order by using the coupon code “KONSULTAMD”. To avail of this service, customers need only to visit medgrocer.com, text 0915 905 0555, or email email@example.com.
“We are honored to be part of KonsulaMD’s efforts to deliver quality healthcare at greater convenience and lower cost to Filipinos. We are really excited to offer KonsultaMD members the option of having their medicines delivered to their doorstep,” said Jerome Uy, CEO of MedGrocer.
Earlier, KonsultaMD also partnered with Lifeline Ambulance Rescue, Inc. where its members get 50% off on Emergency Quick Response ambulance requests (i.e. P5,000/EQR request vs P10,000++ for non-members) as well as enjoy Lifeline member rates for homecare services which includes doctor house-calls, laboratory tests and minor procedures.
KonsultaMD is an affiliate of Globe Telecom which provides straightforward help with health and medical-related questions 24/7. It does not replace face-to-face interaction between doctors and patients but only serves as a means of interim care so that the public can have immediate and affordable medical attention.
