In the last two years, 40% of people in the United States have either skipped filling a prescription or reduced their doses because the medicine was too expensive. To address this, Foothills United Way, Boulder County and the City of Boulder have partnered to bring the FamilyWize Prescription Drug Discount Card program to our local community.
The FamilyWize program enables participants to receive discounted pricing on prescription drugs. It can offer immediate savings on prescription drugs at participating pharmacies for people without health insurance, during deductible periods and for prescription medicine not covered by health insurance, Medicare and other benefit plans. This is not insurance, nor is it intended to replace insurance.
Cards will be distributed through local non-profit agencies, City of Boulder services, Boulder County services, Foothills United Way, local pharmacies and others.
Simply present your FamilyWize card to the participating pharmacy, along with the prescription from your doctor, to receive your discounts. If you need to transfer a prescription, bring your empty prescription bottle or label with you to the pharmacy.
