Health care coverage is one of the top concerns for people in our community.  United Way is committed to helping increase access to affordable heath care and getting everyone the medicine they need.  Many people who live and work in our community struggle to pay their bills and have to choose between getting the medicine they need and paying for food, rent or utilities.

We are pleased to partner with FamilyWize to offer this important free prescription discount card program to help everyone in our community.

Since FamilyWize began in 2005, this free prescription assistance program has helped over 4.5 million people save money on their prescription medications and 10,000 of those are in the Mid-Ohio Valley.
