Health & Wellness Initiatives

FamilyWize Health & Wellness Initiative gives individuals, families and employees the tools they need to better afford their prescription medication.

Our mission is to improve people’s lives by providing access to affordable prescription medications.  We were founded by Dan and Susan Barnes in 2005 to help people in the Lehigh Valley.  Susan was a nurse and saw too many people come in, get prescribed medications, and never be able to afford them—so they created FamilyWize.  We work with United Ways, American Heart Association, Mental Health America, National Council on Aging, and local organizations and government agencies like yours to help bring this free assistance to people who struggle affording their medication.  Through our collaborative efforts over 15 million people have been able to get needed medication.

The health and productivity of your community is important to both of us and we believe that the FamilyWize Prescription Savings card could be a great resource to add to your county’s wellness initiatives. The program includes a free prescription savings card, optional monthly health and wellness tips, and a drug price lookup tool that makes finding the lowest price locally very easy.

  • Average savings of 45% for most FDA approved prescription medications
  • Anyone can use the free card—there are no eligibility requirements, paperwork or administrative work
  • Patients simply present the card to their pharmacist when purchasing medications and they will receive the lowest price available to them: the negotiated FamilyWize discounted rate, retail price, or insurance price, if they have a health plan.

More information about FamilyWize  and how to apply for your free Drug Discount Card can be found at FamilyWize.org
