In the last two years, 40% of the U.S. population either didn’t buy medicine they needed or reduced the required dosage because of the high cost!
Health care coverage is one of the top concerns for people in our community. United Way is committed to helping increase access to affordable heath care and getting everyone the medicine they need. Many people who live and work in our community struggle to pay their bills and have to choose between getting the medicine they need and paying for food, rent or utilities.
We are pleased to partner with FamilyWize to offer this important free prescription discount card program to help everyone in our community.
Since FamilyWize began in 2005, this free prescription assistance program has helped over 4.5 million people save money on their prescription medications. As you can see from the counter, our United Way and other United Ways across the country are working with FamilyWize every day to help more people.
