UPDATED MARCH 2018
Union County, NJ – December 2017 – United Way of Greater Union County and FamilyWize Community Service Partnership, an organization focused on improving people’s lives by providing access to affordable prescription medications, announced that local residents have access to a free, easy to use prescription discount card that to date has helped over 10 million Americans save more than $1 billion on their prescriptions.
“It comes as no surprise that many families are struggling in an uncertain economy and no one should be forced to choose between paying for food, rent or medicine because of the high cost of prescriptions. We are happy to continue our partnership with FamilyWize to distribute free prescription discount cards to everyone in Union County”, said James Horne, Jr., President and CEO, United Way of Greater Union County.
FamilyWize cards can immediately lower the cost of medicine by an average of around 40 percent for people without insurance or who take medications not covered by their plan. Just by presenting the FamilyWize card or mobile app at their local pharmacy, customers save on the cost of their prescription medicine, no strings attached.
“So many people are struggling with the high cost of medicine and need help right now. The Free FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card can provide immediate savings on prescription medicines, with no eligibility requirements or hidden fees,” said Susan Gilmore, Executive Director of Community Engagement at FamilyWize.
The Free FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card can be used by anyone, including people without insurance and those with insurance who have high deductibles or take medications not covered by their plan. The Free FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card has unlimited use, does not require any personal information from the user and has no eligibility criteria.
To take advantage of the savings that FamilyWize offers, consumers can print a card from uwguc.org/familywize, call 1-800-222-2818 to request a card to be sent to them, or download the free FamilyWize app.
