FamilyWize Launches "Healthy You, Happy Orlando" Campaign

4/20/17

Participants can enter to win $1,000 for themselves and a $10,000 donation to a local charity

FamilyWize Community Service Partnership announced today the launch of "Healthy You, Happy Orlando," a 60-day campaign dedicated to improving the lives of Orlando residents through prescription drug adherence and reducing monthly health costs. Participants will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win $1,000, and also vote for a local charity to receive $10,000 donated by FamilyWize.

To participate, Orlando residents will first download the Free FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card or App. They will then select between four local charities including Heart of Florida United Way, United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties, United Way of Lake & Sumter Counties, and Mental Health Association of Central Florida to receive a $10,000 donation. Those who voted for the winning charity will be entered into the drawing to win $1,000. Sharing FamilyWize and the campaign with friends and family will increase the charity’s chances of winning.

"Now more than ever, families are struggling to afford their prescriptions,” said Joseph Sanginiti, president and CEO of FamilyWize. “With ‘Healthy You, Happy Orlando’ we are helping to raise awareness of how people can save money on their medications, even when covered by insurance, while also continuing to support our cherished community partners who make such a positive impact on local residents.”  

FamilyWize is a community-based organization that negotiates discounts on prescription medications on behalf of patients. These patients then receive medications at lower prices, and pharmacies see healthier and happier patients. Accepted at more than 60,000 pharmacies nationwide and covering all FDA approved prescription medications, the FamilyWize card is free to everyone and has no eligibility requirements. Since its conception, FamilyWize has helped over 10 million Americans save more than $1 billion on prescription drugs.

To participate in the "Healthy You, Happy Orlando" campaign and read the official rules, visit https://familywize.org/Orlando. Deadline to enter is June 16.

In addition to offering a free prescription discount card and app, FamilyWize also offers the Medicine Cabinet, a new feature on their website which allows users to create a personal profile and easily find the lowest price for their prescriptions. Smartphone users can download the free app at the iOS App Store and Google Play.
