Saved About $200

I got the epipen. That is the good news. So bring on the yellow jackets! The better news is when I bought it from Kroger I got the FamilyWize discount and it saved me about $200.

SPREAD THE WORD & HELP OTHERS SAVE

I work with the State Health Insurance Assistance Program here in Tennessee. I assist seniors find ways to afford their medication costs through subsidy programs or through finding a drug plan that covers all of their medications. Sometimes a person who is not eligible for other assistance programs calls in and I refer them to your program. I have sent hundreds of our clients the information on your discount program.

My husband is disabled and doesn't have a prescription coverage so this is the only way to get some of his medications so we can afford them there are still some that we can not afford even this prescription savings card. But thanks to you all for the help we do get.

DRUG PRICE LOOKUP TOOL

The card not only saves me money when I use it, I also love the way I can check prices before I decide to fill a prescription.

VERY APPRECIATED

I have gotten a couple of wonderful discounts on medications that are not covered by my insurance...also a pretty heavy discount on a very expensive medication that is almost unaffordable. These discounts are so very appreciated.

BETTER THAN MY INSURANCE

My insurance company didn't cover one of my prescriptions. I was able to use my FamilyWize discount drug card and it saved me more even more on my prescription than I would have paid with my insurance deductible. Thank you FamilyWize!

TREMENDOUS SAVINGS

Working in Public Service I always offer the card to any one who does not have prescription coverage. My family and I have been using the Family Wize card for years . I feel it is a tremendous savings. Thank you for making this program possible. I'm thrilled it has helped so many people.

EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS

FamilyWize has helped us save money on costly allergy medicine. While it may seem minor, every dollar counts with each 14 days we are buying a $200 medication.

SAVED ENOUGH TO ALSO AFFORD OUR GROCERIES

Got your info from Diabetics Organization. Thank you so much for the discount on Victoza! It would have been close to $500.00 without it. That's a difference between buying groceries or getting medication.

SAVED OVER $60!

When my step son first moved in with us from California he was on a medication that was not covered by our insurance. So we were able to enter the type and dose into the online system, price shop and save over $60 by find the nearest pharmacy with the lowest prices. This truly helped us by keeping our costs down so we could afford the medication and making sure he was still getting the assistance he needed to keep him healthy.

COST WENT FROM $180 TO $37

After losing my health insurance, a local pharmacist automatically used the Family Wize discount card to process my prescription. My cost went from $180 to $37! Not only do I use the card for most prescriptions, I give the information to friends, family and my patients. Yes, I am a healthcare provider without insurance and the Family Wize card has saved me quite a bit of money. I can not help but to share this information to anyone who does not have prescription coverage. It's all about giving back.

SAVED $30 EVERY MONTH!

I was standing in line with my Familywize card waiting to be seen at the pharmacy. I heard a gentleman in front of me saying that he didn't have any money and didn't have insurance to the pharmacist. I tapped on his shoulder and told him I didn't mean to eavesdrop but I offered him my extra copy of my card to see if it could help him save more if he had a few minutes. I went about my shopping and in about 5 minutes the same man found me in the store and thanked me with tears in his eyes. He said that his much needed meds had went from $70.00 to $40.00. He was so grateful for the assistance and the thoughtfulness. That's what its all about. Supporting the community!

SAVED MY FAMILY A LOT OF GRIEF!

Just days after losing my job, my son ran out of his ADHD meds. I went to fill them only to find the cost to be over $500! I couldn't afford that and he couldn't go to school without his meds. I went on Facebook to ask friends and family for advice. A schoolmate replied with the link for this card. Just days later, we received it and I was able to get my son his meds and get back to life. This card saved my family and I a lot of grief!

HUGE SAVINGS WHEN WE NEEDED IT MOST!

My husband lost his job in Dec. 2015 leaving us without medical insurance. His valsartan varies at local pharmacies from $123.02 to $140.47. With the Familywize discount I can get this at Walmart for $19.71! Huge savings when we needed it most!

I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE SAVINGS!

I was at a loss, crying at the dining room table when my friend called, she was surfing the net if you will. She knew I couldn't afford all of my prescriptions every month, I would re use my insulin needles, not taking it as much as I should, and skipped doses on other medications . She saw a ad for FamilyWize Prescription Savings Card. I ordered one right away. It arrived very quickly and when it came I went right to my drug store and was able to picks up all I needed for the month. I could not believe the savings. Thank you FamilyWize!

I TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THE CARD!

I work in the community helping people access mental health care. I tell everyone about the card. It has helped so many people. Those without insurance or who may have lost it at some time, have seen psychiatric medications drop by half the cost, saving clients sometimes two and three hundred dollars!

I SAVED $262 EVERY MONTH!

I suffered severe trauma and loss, and was prescribed several different medications to help me. I was finally able to get down to one prescription, but because it was almost $300. a month, I had to work an additional part time job, just to cover the cost. With your savings card my prescription cost went down to $38. a month! This was nothing short of life changing for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
