FamilyWize Discount Drug Program

Where Does it Come From?

The Prescription Drug Discount Card is offered by FamilyWize.

It’s Free.

There is no cost to you for this donated card and you can start saving money on your prescription drugs immediately.

No Restrictions.

Use your card as often as you need, for any prescription, for everyone in your family.

Your Savings.

The FamilyWize card can save you and your family an average of 20% (about $9.25) on eight out of ten prescriptions.  You will always receive the lower of the discounted price or the pharmacy’s retail price.  Your cost for medication will be the discount price offered through this program, or the pharmacy’s usual and customary retail price, whichever is lower.  This means you are assured the lowest price in that store at the time you purchase the medication.  If the pharmacy’s price is lower, there is no savings or discount.

During 2011, this little card has helped residents of Greater Williamsburg save over $130,000 on every day prescriptions.

This is Not Health Insurance.

Discounts are available only at participating pharmacies. There are more than 55,000 participating pharmacies across the United States.  Most major chains, including Walgreens, Eckerd, Rite-Aid, and CVS are participating. To find the pharmacy nearest you, visit the FamilyWize Web site at
