New merger means United Manner prescription card might prevent more cash on drugs

MACON, Ga. – The United Way of Central Georgia announced that it is merging its FamilyWize prescription drug card with the SingleCare rebate plan.

That means you could save even more money than you did before.

The merger offers a larger network of pharmacies and bigger prescription discounts.

According to United Way, the card has saved Central Georgians an average of 45% on prescriptions, but now those savings can increase to 80%.

“This card really works for everyone. If you get a prescription and give them the individual care information, the drugstore will run it and they’ll give you either the single card price, the insurance price, or the retail price, which is always lower,” said George McCanless .

The card is free, you don’t have to register and there are no conditions of participation.
