Lower the Cost of Your Prescription Medications With the FamilyWize Card
If you don't have health insurance, or need medicine not covered by your insurance plan, you need the FamilyWize prescription drug discount card being distributed by United Way of South Central Indiana. This card could lower the cost of your medicine by an average 25%. United Way of South Central Indiana is providing these cards free-of-charge to everyone in our community. There are no age restriction, no income restrictions, no limit on how many times you can use it and no waiting to get a card. In fact, you can print this one out and use it today.
When you present this card and your prescription to a participating pharmacy, you pay either the discounted or the pharmacy's retail price, whichever is lower. Your card can be used often as needed.
In addition, when you call the cardholder hotline listed on your FamilyWize card, you can share the name of your prescription and your zip code in order to find out where you can obtain your prescription at the lowest rate within your community.
Healthcare costs are one of the top concerns for people in our community, 40% of adults don't buy the medicine they need, have difficulty affording it or reduce the required dosage because of the high cost. The FamilyWize prescription drug discount cards will help individuals and families who otherwise could not afford to buy the medicine they need. Too many people have insufficient coverage, no prescription coverage or need medications not covered by their insurance, Medicare, Medicaid or VA benefits. In the 2 years that we have been distributing these cards people in Lawrence County have saved over $120,000.00 on their prescriptions simply by presenting the card to their pharmacy. Orange County residents are beginning to benefit as well.
FamilyWize cards also can be obtained from many of the participating local pharmacies, at any UW member agency, or by calling United Way of South Central Indiana at 849-4297. Local businesses and employers can also get cards to give all their employees. The card displayed above can also be printed and cut out for immediate use.
The FamilyWize cards are accepted at Wal-Mart, K-Mart, CVS, Crowder's Pharmacy, K-Mart, Lincoln Plaza Pharmacy, Walgreen and Wal-Mart.
It's truly amazing what we can accomplish when we all work together. So many people and organizations have joined together to make this possible. We invite all area organizations to contact us for a supply of cards, as well as every local business to get cards for all their employees and their families.
