Free prescription discount card benefiting the National Kidney Foundation

National Kidney Foundation® has formed a partnership with Watertree Health, the leading provider of free prescription discount cards benefiting nonprofits, to help build awareness, prevention and treatment for chronic kidney disease. This disease causes more deaths than breast cancer or prostate cancer combined.

Lack of patient adherence to prescribed medications is an issue. In fact, 1 in 10 American adults don't take their medications as prescribed because they can't afford to* —many may be your patients. That's why we're partnering with Watertree Health to offer free prescription discount cards that can save your patients up to 75% on their vital medications. And, every time someone saves using these cards, Watertree Health® donates $.30 to the NKF, at no cost to the cardholder.

If you would like to receive these free cards for your patients and their families or have questions or feedback, please call Watertree Health toll-free at 1-844-728-3667, email, or

This is not insurance. This card cannot be used in combination with any third-party payer program, including but not limited to prescription drug coverage through Medicare or Medicaid". Full disclaimer:
