Familywize Community Service Partnership
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 Southwest Oklahoma is committed to helping increase access to affordable health 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 4.5 million people save money on their prescription medications. As you can see from the counter, our United Way of Southwest Oklahoma and other United Ways across the country are working with FamilyWize everyday to help more people.
About the Discount Card
FamilyWize essentially acts like a huge consumer group buying service for the uninsured and underinsured. The discounts and savings on medications are provided voluntarily by the more than 61,000 participating pharmacies that have agreed to provide prices similar to what they give large insurance companies and employers. The participating pharmacies get more business, in three ways:
1. FamilyWize directs people with FamilyWize cards to their stores;
2. People are able to fill more of their prescriptions because of the savings;
3. People often buy other things when they go into the store to get their prescriptions.
