The FamilyWize® Community Service Partnership was established in Fall 2005 to help people get the medicine they need. The idea was that no one should have to choose between purchasing medications, or food, utilities, rent and other necessities.
Today, more than 1,000 United Ways and America's Promise Alliance Partners in all 50 states coordinate the local distribution of free FamilyWize® prescription drug discount cards. These cards lower the cost of medicine, making it affordable for those who do not have insurance or do not have certain medications covered by insurance. No membership fee is required.
Locally, those in United Way of the River Cities' service area have saved $774,331 since 2005. Discount cards have saved residents an average of $20 per prescription. In West Virginia, FamilyWize® cards have saved people more than $7 million since 2005.
