2013 is upon us! It's a time to reflect on the past year and make plans for the new year. Throughout the past year, FamilyWize, with the help of over 1,000 United Ways and America's Promise Alliance Partners and communities all over the country, distributed the FamilyWize prescription savings card.

One out of every five people in the United States has no prescription drug coverage. Without coverage, many people go without life-saving medications or ration their medications in order to make ends meet. When people do not take prescriptions as directed, their chance of worsening health issues increases. The result is more costly medical care, hospital stays and longer recovery time. Prescription drug card customers are able to save on costly medications, and adhere to their medication directions.
The FamilyWize website has tools to look up your pharmacy and do some comparison shopping with the drug price look up. You can save up to 75% on prescription costs, depending on the medication and the pharmacy.
Formed in 2005 by Dan and Susan Barnes, the Familywize partnership sets the goal of saving families, children and individuals $1 billion by the end of 2015. We hope to build stronger communities by helping to build healthier and happier families.
