Lenawee United Way provides free FamilyWize prescription discount cards for everyone in our area, printed cards and, now, electronically as well.
The FamilyWize Community Service Partnership was established in the fall of 2005 to help people get the medicine they need. Today, more than 1,000 participating United Ways and America’s Promise Alliance Partners in all 50 states coordinate the local distribution of the free FamilyWize prescription drug discount cards which lower the cost of medicine by up to 75% and make it more affordable. By April 2012, the free FamilyWize cards have helped more than 4 million people save over $345 million. Now, you can just text the word “family” to 700700 to save up to 75% on the cost of your prescription medicine.
When you get a free FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card sent to your cell phone by text, just show the text to your pharmacist. They will automatically apply the discount to the cost of your medicine. And you can help everyone you know by forwarding on the information.
You can also get a free, printable, FamilyWize card online at FamilyWize Page, www.FamilyWize.org, or the new FamilyWize Facebook page: www.facebook.com/FamilyWize.
There are still more than 80 million people in the United States, in every community, large and small, that have no health insurance or need help to buy prescription medicine not covered by their health plan. “Technology makes it possible for us to help a lot more people, much more quickly.” said Dan Barnes, Chief Executive and Co-Chair of FamilyWize. “It’s really incredible how cell phones, the Internet, Facebook and Twitter can make getting help so much easier and faster.”
Lenawee United Way and FamilyWize have already saved people living and working in our community over $430,000 on the cost of their medicine. Please take one minute to help yourself, and to help your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers by sending them a text, email, Facebook or Twitter message to let them know about this important free help.
