The goal of the FamilyWize® Community Service Partnership is to reduce the cost of prescription medicine for children, families and individuals by $1 billion by the end of 2015. We believe that stronger, healthier and happier people make healthier and better communities.
We deliver these savings by distributing free prescription drug discount cards. These pharmacy discount cards are provided free of charge both to the organizations and agencies helping to distribute the drug cards and to the people who receive the cards. All funding for the FamilyWize prescription card program is provided by part of the dispensing fee that is included in the cost of medicines when a FamilyWize card is used to save you money, and by in-kind donations and reduced costs from the program sponsors.
