FamilyWizeUse the FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card and Save on Your Prescription Medications.

80 million people in the United States are uninsured and underinsured.  In the last two years, 40% of the U.S. population either didn’t buy medicine they needed or reduced the required dosage because of the high cost!

Health care coverage is one of the top concerns for people in our community.  United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties is committed to helping increase access to affordable heath care and getting everyone the medicine they need.  Many people who live and work in our community struggle to pay their bills and have to choose between getting the medicine they need and paying for food, rent or utilities.

We are pleased to partner with FamilyWize to offer this important free prescription discount card program to help everyone in our community.

Since FamilyWize began in 2005, this free prescription assistance program has helped over 5.7 million people save money on their prescription medications.  As you can see from the counter, United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties and other participating United Ways across the country are working with FamilyWize every day to help more people.

Who Can Use The Prescription Discount Card?

The FamilyWize prescription drug discount cards can be used by everyone in the community for prescription medicine.  Not just people with no insurance.   There are no usage, age, or income limits.   

How Does the Card Work?

Simply give the card to the pharmacist with your prescription.  An instant discount— varies by medication—is applied to the prescription medicine.  The card provides pharmacy discounts (up to 75%) on all FDA approved prescription medicine not covered by insurance, Medicaid, Medicare or other benefit plans.  You pay either the discounted price or the pharmacy's retail price, whichever is lower. 

Where Do I Get A Card?

Just click the free prescription discount card below to print your own.  Or text the word “family” to 700700 and receive card information on your phone.  Take it to one of the 60,000 participating pharmacies to begin saving immediately.

You can change someone’s life by printing FamilyWize cards and giving them out to your friends, neighbors and co-workers, or just handing one to someone in line at the pharmacy or supermarket.
