United Way is pleased to offer the FamilyWize Prescription Drug Discount card. This card is free, with no enrollment, activation or fees nor are there any age or income restrictions. The card can be used by the whole family and is for people with no insurance or for medicine not covered by insurance, Medicare or other benefit plans. Average discounts equal approximately 30% or more and the card is accepted at most pharmacies nationwide, including all major chains.
How Does the Card Work?
The FamilyWize cards are prescription drug cards. They reduce the cost of medicine and are self-explanatory. (All cards are bi-lingual, English and Spanish).
People just give the card to the pharmacists with the prescription from their doctor. The discount varies by medication and the pharmacist will apply the discount automatically. People will save 8 times out of 10 over the pharmacy prices. The only time there is no discount is when the pharmacy prices is already lower, because people always pay the lowest price.
All FDA approved brand and generic prescription medications are covered with the exception of mail order prescription services.
Who Can Use the Card?
These FamilyWize prescription drug discount cards can be used by everyone in the community. Not just people with no insurance.
They can be used by:
- people with health insurance, Medicaid or Medicare during deductible periods;
- or medications not covered by their plan; and
- for people with Medicare Part D during the "doughnut hole"
The cards cannot be used simultaneously on the same prescription to get a discount on the co-pay for example, but it can be used if a prescription plan doesn't cover a particular drug.
