FamilyWize Prescription Drug Discount Program

United Way of Western CT helps ALICE prosper

More than one out of every five people in the US has no prescription drug coverage. Medications for even the most basic illnesses can quickly add up, never mind the costs to manage illness such as asthma, diabetes, or high blood pressure.

The FamilyWize Community Partnership seeks to reduce the cost of medicine for children, families and individuals with no prescription drug coverage by $100 million. The FamilyWize prescription drug discount card can save you and your family an average of 20% or more on 8 out of 10 prescriptions.

How? Simply present your card and prescription to a participating pharmacy to obtain the discounted price. You always receive the lower of the discounted price or pharmacy's retail price. This is not health insurance, this is a prescription drug discount plan.

FamilyWize prescription drug discount cards are being distributed free of charge by United Way of Western Connecticut, the FamilyWize Partnership, and more than 750 other United Ways through the US and Puerto Rico.

Discounts are available only at participating pharmacies. Enter information about your prescription below to see where to pay less for your prescriptions and get your own FamilyWize card.
