SingleCare Prescription Discount Program

Everyone in the community can use the SingleCare prescription drug discount cards for prescription medicine. Not just people with no insurance. There are no usage, age, or income limits.

Healthcare coverage is one of the top concerns for people in our community.  United Way of Fort Smith Area is committed to helping increase access to affordable health 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.
