help w/ DMD costs or instruction

In our poll on DMD one member listed they were not taking DMD's because of expense.  Since I have no insurance I too was worried about when/if  the time came for  me how would I get access to medication.  In my research this is what I have found. Remove any space from the addresses provided.  If something does get removed PM me and I will get it back to you.


Through the MS LifeLines Access Made Simple program, you may be eligible to get Rebif® (interferon beta-1a) at no cost, or for no more than $50 per month, for up to one year of treatment. Best of all, MS LifeLines takes care of all the paperwork....   http://www.  mslifelines.  com/rebif/insurance/ access-made-simple. jsp?intcmp

Terry,
Thanks for pulling that information together in one spot - there is assistance for anyone who needs these drugs.  Be sure and talk to your doctor about the costs and financial hardships involved.

Good luck,
Lulu

I probably should have also mentioned that MSAA  (Multiple Sclerosis Association of American) has an equipment distribution program and a cooling equipment distribution program.  I would recommend anyone with MS or waiting on a dx go to the site and join.  After joining they sent me an introductory packet with a lot of info.

Thanks saveone, I too am without health ins and if or when I get a dx, if it is MS, I didn't know how I would pay for any of the DMDs.  This info is really helpful.
