WithMe Health, a personalized medication guidance company, has raised $20 million in a Series B funding round that closed last week. OMERS Ventures led the round, along with participation from existing investor Oak HC/FT and new investors Section 32, Shulman Ventures and MTS Ventures.
The company also brought on Michael Yang, a managing partner at OMERS Ventures, to join the WithMe Health board of directors and Brian Marcotte, the past CEO and president of the Business Group on Health, to join the company’s advisory board.

“We are excited to partner with Joe Murad and the WithMe Health team as they bring a new medication management model to a very traditional pharmacy benefit management market,” Yang said in a statement. “The early traction they’ve had getting new customers onboard is impressive and a clear indication that the need for a product like this is significant and timely.”

With a streamlined experience, our customers will have complete insurance coverage, from treating simple ailments via a video consultation to major events and/or accidents.
