Rx Help Available for Nation’s Largest Uninsured Population
Date:1/9/2013

Lehigh Valley, PA (PRWEB) January 09, 2013

Hispanics account for the largest percentage of Americans without health insurance, according to a 2010 release by Pfizer. Now, any member of the Hispanic community without insurance can purchase their medicine at a reasonable cost. The FamilyWize Community Service Partnership, a proud partner of United Way recently launched a Spanish version of their website, which provides access to a free prescription discount card that can be used by anyone at most major pharmacies. FamilyWize hopes that the new website will overcome language barriers to the Hispanic public and provide useful information, in Spanish, about FamilyWize and the card.

"The launch of the Spanish version of FamilyWize is another step forward for FamilyWize and our community partners as we work together to help as many people as possible get the medicine they need,” says Dan Barnes, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of FamilyWize. “30 percent of the people in the United States that have no health insurance are Hispanic and this is one of the ways we are reaching out to bring help to them through our efforts."

In a September 2010 Pfizer release, it was stated that Hispanics are more likely to work in small businesses, part-time or lower wage jobs and industries that are less likely to offer employees health insurance. Pfizer continues to say that by 2050, Hispanics are projected to make up 30 percent of the US population and 31 percent of working-age adults. According to FamilyWize, these statistics raise concerns about the future health of the US working-age population.

“We believe it is critical that patients understand the positive, long-term effects of filling, using, and re-filling medication as prescribed,” says Sharon Galza
