Almost every family in the United States today faces health or financial challenges. FamilyWize provides prescription assistance and information to help everyone be healthy, physically and financially. In the spring of 2005, Dan and Susan Barnes heard of families in the Lehigh Valley area who were having difficulty buying the medicine they needed because of the high cost of prescription drugs. They responded by distributing a free prescription drug savings card through family and health centers in the schools in Bethlehem. The family centers were supported by the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley who then asked 25 of its partner agencies to help distribute the cards to individuals and families in need throughout the area. Almost immediately, Dan and Susan received requests from other United Ways to provide this free assistance in other communities. As a result, they established the FamilyWize Community Service Partnership by inviting a group of local and national companies to join together to provide this free assistance. Currently almost 1000 participating United Ways in all 50 states coordinate the local distribution of the free FamilyWize prescription drug savings cards. Over $700 MM in savings has been realized from the use of FamilyWize prescription drug discount cards, and a new goal has been surpassed to reach $1 billion in savings by the end of 2015.
