United Way partners with Familywize to provide a free prescription drug discount card to the community. Individuals can save up to 30% on their prescriptions, and since launching the program more than 4,500 residents in our region have signed up for the card. To obtain a card, visit www.familywize.com.
The goal of the FamilyWize® Community Service Partnership, Inc is to reduce the cost of prescription medicine for children, families and individuals by $1 billion by the end of 2015. We believe that stronger, healthier and happier people make healthier and better communities.
We deliver these savings by distributing free prescription drug discount cards. These pharmacy discount cards are provided free of charge to those who use the card. All funding for the FamilyWize prescription card program is provided by part of the dispensing fee that is included in the cost of medicines when a FamilyWize card is used to save you money, and by in-kind donations and reduced costs from the program sponsors.
How the FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card Works
It’s easy to use a FamilyWize Card. There are no forms to fill out, waiting period or registration. The card is really just like a reusable prescription coupon on all FDA approved medicines. Anyone in your family, your work, your church or your neighborhood can use it. Immediately. You can even use it if you have health insurance, both during deductible periods and for anything your insurance does not pay for.
