FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card

United  Way of Nevada County is proud to partner with FamilyWize to provide Prescription  Assistance to those who are uninsured or under-insured or simply need prescription assistance during difficult times.

It’s  easy to use a FamilyWize Card. There are no forms to fill out, waiting  period or registration. The card is just like a reusable  prescription coupon on all FDA approved medicines.  Anyone in your  family, your work, your church or your neighborhood can use it. 

You can even use it if you have health insurance, both during deductible periods and for anything your insurance does not pay  for.

You Can Receive Your Card in Several Ways:

Download the FamilyWize smart phone app, print a card online or have one sent directly to your home at the FamilyWize website.

Text to Get a Drug Card by texting the word "Family" to 700700. An  electronic free prescription card will be sent to your phone to show  your pharmacist.

Contact United Way at 274-8111 or email admin@uwnc.org to request your card or if you have questions.
