About Us

Welvista envisions a South Carolina where no one has to choose between food and medication and no child goes without dental care.

Our Mission

Advancing wellness among our most vulnerable.

Serving South Carolinians Since 1991

Founded in 1991, Welvista is a 501(c)3 nonprofit 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.

Welvista is one of the largest mail-order pharmacies in the nation. Welvista partners with nine pharmaceutical companies, who donate brand name medications, to provide free prescription medications for the uninsured. Our formulary also includes generic medications. By providing a single point of access to over 170 medications that treat chronic illnesses, Welvista bridges a tremendous gap in prescription assistance to support hope and wellness in South Carolina.

  • In 2021, Welvista filled 263,391 free prescriptions in the treatment of chronic disease for 20,683 patients.
  • Since 2001, the children’s dental program has provided over 120,200 fillings and sealants to more than 23,000 young students across 28 schools in high-need districts.
