FamilyWize Prescription Savings Card

 

Take control of prescription costs.

More than 138 million Americans are uninsured or underinsured. 71% of people who cannot afford medications come from working families.

Oshkosh Area United Way and the FamilyWize Community Service Partnership are improving access to affordable prescription medications through a free, easy-to-use prescription discount card. The FamilyWize prescription card gives individuals and families access to discounts on prescription drugs, allowing them to save an average of around 45 percent on their medications. The FamilyWize program is free, has no eligibility requirements, and provides access to medications at an affordable cost.  Over 13 million Americans have saved more than $1.5 billion on their prescriptions. 

In Winnebago County alone, more than $427,442.80 has been saved by approximately 4,477 residents as a result of people using the card at local pharmacies.*

This program makes a real impact on the lives of Oshkosh residents. Residents like Kristina.

“I have fibromyalgia and take five different medications for it, and comorbid conditions. I was paying close to $400 each month for my prescriptions. I had been using a different discount program, which reduced my cost $250. However, when I heard about FamilyWize and used it at the pharmacy, I now pay less than $200/month. Combined with my husband’s prescriptions, we have saved almost 60% on our medications each month. I have also shared the FamilyWize program with my in-laws. They will be saving around $300 per month on their medications as well. One of the best features of the FamilyWize program is that you can enter your zip code on their website, and it will find the least costly place to purchase your medications in your area. My in-laws no longer have to drive 35 miles to the pharmacy, as they were able to transfer their prescriptions to one only 15 minutes away.”
