We understand that it can be a bit confusing – shouldn’t your insurance coverage alone provide you with the best price? Unfortunately, the answer is no; insurance is not a guarantee that you’ll pay the lowest price.
To help ease any confusion, here are the key things you need to know about the Free FamilyWize Prescription Savings Card and app:
- They help you to save an average of 43 percent on your prescriptions
- They are free for everyone
- They can be used nationwide at more than 60,000 pharmacies, including national chains as well as local neighborhood pharmacies
- There is no registration process, activation, or restrictions for who can use them
- They have unlimited use, so show you can use them on every prescription and refill – but you have to show the card or the app every time
- Anyone can use your card or app – friends, family members, and even neighbors
What if I have insurance?
The discounts you get on prescription purchases with your FamilyWize card or app are the same for those with insurance as for those without – either way you pay our lowest available price. So why use it?
- You can save on prescription drugs that are excluded by your insurance plan or are not covered because you have exceeded your insurance plan's maximum limits.
- In some cases, the FamilyWize price is actually lower than your program's co-payment amount, so it’s always worth checking to compare the prices.
- If your insurance plan does not offer you a drug card and you are reimbursed after each transaction, you may be able to use the FamilyWize card or app to lower your out-of-pocket expenses.
