United Way has prescription for savings!

The people living and working in Marathon County have saved more than $682,000 on everyday prescription costs, thanks to a partnership between United Way and FamilyWize. The free FamilyWize drug savings card is distributed by United Way of Marathon County to help residents who are struggling to pay for their prescriptions.

The goal of the program is to ensure people are able to purchase the medications they need, while still paying for their other expenses. Too often people are forced to choose between buying needed medications and paying for other basic needs like food, rent or utilities. The FamilyWize card can help.

The FamilyWize card lowers the cost of medicine by an average of 40% or more for people without insurance or who take medications not covered by their plan. It’s easy. It’s just like a coupon you can keep using every time you need to fill a prescription.

There are several benefits to using a FamilyWize card:

  • It’s free and easy to use
  • Can be used immediately and for an unlimited time
  • The card is accepted at 95% of pharmacies nationwide
  • There are no enrollment forms or personal information needed

There are several ways to get a card. Click on the Income Assistance Program in the left menu bar to print a card or go to www.FamilyWize.org to print a card, look up drug prices and obtain a list of participating pharmacies. Cards can also be picked up at United Way, 705 S. 24th Ave, Ste. 400B, Wausau, or at area pharmacies. You can also text the word "Family" to 700700. An electronic card will be sent to your cell phone.

If you have questions, please call United Way's 2-1-1.
