One of the newest members of the Medicom Health Team, Matt Botkin is an integral part of our newest program, Rx Savings Assistant. When he began the process to find a partner for his MedSocket Coupon Business, his goal was to work with a team that had both a large client base and a great development team that could overcome the many issues they were trying to solve. Once he met Medicom Health’s CEO Will Sigsbee and the rest of the leadership team in early 2018, the discussions began and ultimately Rx Savings Assistant was born. According to Matt, Medicom is more than he had hoped for and everyone on the team has been great to work with.
Matt has always enjoyed being a part of new groups within his corporate roles. Early in his career, he helped launch the expansion of the Outlet division at Sears and was early in the real estate group that looked to lease store space to other retailers. He also started a home building company while he worked at Sears – so it seems the entrepreneurial bug has always been with him.
These days, you can find Matt working with the first group of Health Systems as they get Rx Savings Assistant up and running. He is also working on creating the valuable partnerships needed with Pharmaceutical companies to bring as many offers to the program as possible.
