I’ve come to realize that a few key concepts have benefitted both me and my kiddos, mightily.

Do your best to stay healthy.

No, you don’t have to douse yourself in antibacterial gel, but rest and nourish your body, head to the doctor when you’re feeling lousy, and be diligent about your medications and supplements.

Simplify your household.

Clear the clutter. Automate what you can. Let the apps and the websites of your favorite businesses do the heavy lifting.

Save money when you can.

More money in your pocket means more flexibility, more fun, and more peace of mind.

Did you know you can do all three of those things with FamilyWize?

There are two simple ways to sign up to receive savings with FamilyWize with no eligibility requirements or fees:

To receive the savings, just present the card to the pharmacist at pickup at over 60,000 partner pharmacy locations. Easy.

The FamilyWize website and app are also packed with features to help you save time and money.

The Drug Price Lookup Tool allows users to compare the FamilyWize price of their prescription costs between local pharmacies to receive the best possible savings in a designated zip code.

One of FamilyWize’s newest features, Medicine Cabinet, allows users to create a personal profile to store their family’s prescription information in one secure location. Users can save and track their prescription drug searches, bundle prescription by pharmacy to see the total cumulative costs prior to purchasing, edit the dosage, strength, and quantity of their changing prescriptions, and compare pricing between generic and name brand prescriptions.

At the time that she was diagnosed, Maryann was paying for her two daughters’ college expenses, and was the primary caregiver for her then 88-year-old mother who suffers from dementia. In a two-year period, she underwent six surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. She was then prescribed an Adjuvant chemotherapy drug that would cost her $1,100 for a 90-day period, even with insurance. When a friend suggested that Maryann use the FamilyWize Prescription Discounts Card to reduce her medication prices, her life changed dramatically. The cost of her prescriptions were reduced by 67 percent. Thanks to FamilyWize, Maryann was able choose both her health, and the well-being of her family.
