United Way has Prescription for Everyday Savings
New, free drug discount card saves everyone money at local pharmacies
Help is here to lower the cost of medicine, thanks to a free drug discount card provided by United Way. “No one should be forced to choose between paying for food, rent or medicine because of the high cost of prescriptions. That’s why we’ve partnered with FamilyWize to distribute free prescription discount cards to everyone in the Greater Topeka Area.”
About the Card:
FamilyWize cards immediately lower the cost of medicine by an average of 35% or more for people without insurance or who take medications not covered by their plan. Just by presenting the FamilyWize card at their local pharmacy, customers save on the cost of their prescription medicine 80% of the time. “So many people are struggling with the high cost of medicine and need help right now. We knew we couldn’t wait years for healthcare reform to be implemented. The FamilyWize card provides immediate savings on prescription medicines, with no paperwork or forms to fill out,” said Dan Barnes, Co-chair of The FamilyWize Community Service Partnership.
These cards can be used by everyone in the community, not just people without insurance. They can even be used by people with health benefits, including Medicaid or Medicare.
The pharmacies use the FamilyWize discount drug card like a reusable prescription coupon. This Rx discount card lowers the cost of your prescription drug expenses - over and over again. This helps you get the medicine you need, when you need it!
Over 60,000 participating pharmacy chains and private pharmacies, such as Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, Walmart, Target, Kmart and many more take the prescription card to provide deep discounts on prescription medicines.
