The North Penn United Way has partnered with a nonprofit organization called FamilyWize on a discount drug card. United Way Vista Volunteer Steve McGlynn says it helps people save on prescriptions, and everyone is eligible.
“There’s no age restriction and no income restriction. As long as you have a valid prescription you can have it filled at a discounted price. Unless people have really good prescription insurance coverage, he says they can most likely save money through this program.”
McGlynn says people save money on their drugs about 80 percent of the time through the program. He says the United Way is leveraging its power as a buying agent and getting pharmacies to cut their prices to what they would offer a large company.
