The FamilyWize Partnership

We know that good health is a building block of a strong community. Our health underpins our ability to thrive at home, at school and at work. That’s why United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey (UWGPSNJ) has partnered with FamilyWize to provide free prescription discount cards across the region.

FamilyWize cards immediately lower the cost of prescriptions for people without insurance or who take medications not covered by their plan. Discounts vary, but on average, card holders receive significant savings. UWGPSNJ is part of 1,000 United Ways across the country that have already helped residents nationwide save more than $600 million in direct savings on prescriptions since 2005.

FamilyWize cards are available to everyone in the community, regardless of location, current health benefits like Medicaid or Medicare or lack of insurance. No paperwork is needed; just print the card and present it at your local pharmacy!

Obtaining a card is easy and can be done in a number of ways:

    • Visit www.FamilyWize.org to print a card, look up drug prices and find a list of participating pharmacies.
    • Download the FamilyWize app to have all the features of the website at your fingertips.
    • Text the word “Family” to 700700. An electronic free prescription card will be sent to your phone to show your pharmacist.
