United Way partners with FamilyWize to help find lower prescription rates. FamilyWize acts like a big buying group, pulling together millions of people that either have no health insurance (uninsured) and those who have high  medication costs or need to buy medicine not covered by their plan (underinsured).  familywize
FamilyWize negotiates with the pharmacies to get discounts similar to what they give large groups like insurance companies and employers. FamilyWize passes through 100% of these negotiated discounts to the people using the card to purchase their medicine. In 2014, the average savings was 42%.
