FamilyWize is a community service partnership established to reduce the cost of medicine for children, families and individuals with no prescription drug coverage by $100 million in five years. Cowlitz County United Way is participating in this effort by distributing FamilyWize Prescription Discount Cards in our community. The FamilyWize Prescription Drug Discount Card enables families and individuals to receive discounted pricing on prescription drugs. This is not insurance. Rather, it is a program that offers immediate discounts on prescription drugs at participating pharmacies. Simply present the card with each prescription to the participating pharmacy at the time of purchase to receive discounts. Save an average of 20% off the pharmacy’s usual and customary retail price of prescription drugs, with the highest savings on generic drugs.
The cost for medication will be the discount price offered through this program, or the pharmacy’s usual and customary retail price, whichever is lower. This means users are assured the lowest price in that store, at the time they purchase the medication. If the pharmacy’s price is lower, there is no savings or discount.
