FamilyWize Reaches $1 Billion in Cumulative Savings!

May 09, 2017 in United Way News

Congratulations to FamilyWize for reaching a fantastic milestone, $1 Billion in cumulative savings!

FamilyWize distributes prescription savings cards, free of charge, making prescription medications more affordable. FamilyWize is a trusted and valued partner of UWCFA and its services are used by many across our four counties and the United States.

In 2016, FamilyWize has helped over 2,290,000 people nationwide, with a total savings of $179,610,920. There are no fees or requirements to be eligible and FamilyWize is accepted at thousands of chain and independent pharmacies nationwide.

The average savings is about 40% per prescription. However, this is an average. Take your prescription with your savings card to a participating pharmacy and the pharmacist can tell you how much the medicine will cost with and without the use of the card. You can also lookup the cost of the prescription by using the Drug Price Lookup tool.

UWCFA partners with organizations like FamilyWize that share the view that the way to improve lives is by mobilizing the caring power of communities. Our long-term commitments are essential to addressing key social issues, such as promoting financial stability and independence, and improving people’s health.

We look forward to even more future success for the organization and increased benefits to the community!
