Prescription Drug Discount Card Helps Families Save Money

The FamilyWize Prescription Savings Card is free for everyone--both insured and uninsured. Using the card every time you fill a prescription could lower the cost of your medicine by an average 45 percent. The card is easy to use--there is no registration or activation, no restrictions due to preexisting conditions, and it has unlimted use. United Way of Elgin provides these cards to our community free-of-charge to everyone who needs one. The card is available at many of our social service partner agencies, or you can dowload this one and use it today! You can also text Family to 700700 to download the card to your mobile device. When you present this card and your prescription to a participating pharmacy, you pay either the discounted or the pharmacy’s retail price, whichever is lower. You can use this drug price lookup tool to see what your savings could be:

Living United for better nationwide healthcare

For the last 11 years, United Ways and FamilyWize Community Service Partnership have collaborated to bring greater stability to communities nationwide.
