SingleCare Free Prescription Discount Card

United Way of Lewis County is pleased to offer the SingleCare (formerly FamilyWize) prescription discount card. The card can be used by the whole family and is for people with no insurance or for medicine not covered by insurance, Medicare or other benefit plans. The SingleCare discount card could lower the cost of medicine by an average of 35%. Since we first introduced the card (then known as FamlyWize) in 2013, more than 19,090 Lewis County residents have saved more than $2,276,688 dollars on their prescription medicines. 

Who is eligible?
ANYONE! If you are uninsured, underinsured, or experience high deductibles, this program can help you save on prescription costs. You can use your SingleCare discount card every time you visit your pharmacy - just present it at each visit to get the savings. 

How it works...

                    

There is no registration or eligibility criteria - you can use it immediately when you receive your card. No activation needed, no paperwork, and unlimited use.
