That’s why we’ve partnered with FamilyWize to distribute free prescription discount cards to everyone in Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa and Washington Parishes.

FREE DRUG DISCOUNT CARD SAVES EVERYONE MONEY AT LOCAL PHARMACIES
FamilyWize cards immediately lower the cost of medicine by an average of 35% or more for people without insurance or who take medications not covered by their plan. Just by presenting the FamilyWize card at their local pharmacy, customers save on the cost of their prescription medicine 80% of the time. “So many people are struggling with the high cost of medicine and need help right now. We knew we couldn’t wait years for healthcare reform to be implemented. The FamilyWize card provides immediate savings on prescription medicines, with no paperwork or forms to fill out,” said Dan Barnes, co-chair of The FamilyWize Community Service Partnership.
