Serving South Carolinians Since 1991
Founded in 1991, Welvista is a 501(c)3 organization that helps uninsured and underserved South Carolinians gain access to essential health services while reducing the long-term costs of health care that result from untreated conditions. In 2019, Welvista filled more than 304,300 free prescriptions in the treatment of chronic disease for 25,700 patients, at an average wholesale value of more than $188 million. The pediatric dental program has provided more than 105,500 fillings and sealants to more than 16,600 young students across 5 high-need school districts.
One of the Largest Mail-Order Pharmacies
Welvista has evolved into an organization partnering with nine pharmaceutical companies, who donate brand name medications, making Welvista one of the largest mail-order pharmacies in the nation providing free prescription medications for the uninsured. Welvista’s formulary also includes generic medications. By providing a single point of access to over 170 medications that treat chronic illnesses, Welvista is a viable solution to bridge a tremendous gap in prescription assistance to support hope and wellness in South Carolina.
