United-Way-La-Porte-FamilyWize-CardFor ten years, the United Way of LaPorte County has offered a way for people to save on their prescription medications, with the FamilyWize Prescription Drug Discount card. Over 10,000 LaPorte County residents have saved over $1 MILLION using this free benefit! The savings in 2015 alone has already surpassed $100,000.

“No one should be forced to choose between paying for food, rent or medicine because of the high cost of prescriptions. That’s why we partnered with FamilyWize – to distribute free prescription savings cards to everyone in LaPorte County,” said Kris Pate, Executive Director of the United Way of LaPorte County.
