Approximately 40% of people in the United States in the last two years have either skipped filling a prescription or reduced doses because the medicine was too expensive. To address this, almost 1,000 United Way agencies plus America’s Promise Alliance Partners, in all 50 states, have come together in this FamilyWize community service partnership to organize and coordinate community-wide distribution of free FamilyWize prescription drug discount cards.  Over $350 million has been saved as of April, 2012!

United Way of Boone County has partnered with FamilyWize to bring prescription discounts to individuals and families not covered by health insurance or those who do not have adequate medical coverage.  United Way is providing these cards free-of-charge to everyone in our community.
