Milligram was created as a web-based medication price transparency engine. Our software helps patients and providers find medication at the lowest price in any given zip code. Our translations support English, Spanish, Tagalog and Chinese. With our three data partners, Milligram searches prices of medications nationwide at 65,000+ pharmacies, offering the lowest prices on the internet.
Prescription medicines make up 13% of the total healthcare spending in the United States. At the same time, that health care spending is increasing, more patients are paying a higher proportion of their own healthcare costs through high-deductible plans and health savings accounts. For many patients, the cost of the medications they need in order to stay healthy puts a considerable financial burden on themselves and their families.
We strive to help individual patients save money on their prescriptions, enable healthcare providers to help their patients adhere to treatment plans through affordable medications and allow insurers and accountable care organizations to keep their costs down. Ultimately, we want to cure price blindness by creating transparency of medication pricing; thereby leading patients to healthier lives, reducing the amount of money spent on healthcare each year.
