Beginner's Guidet to MS: Need help paying drug bills?
I get Copaxone through the program administered by NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders). I qualified for full assistance and only pay $15 for each 3-month shipment. However, and this is a big however, I had to qualify finanacially which (after being denied one year) turned out to be an income below 200% federal poverty level and not large resources.
Jill, yes there is help in paying for the shots. My Dr. just told me he was putting me on Copaxen.When I heard the price of the meds, I of course thought, "well, there is just no way". However, I have since found out that that is not the case, I am on Medicare so they pay for some. However, the biggest part will come from a organization named Shared Solutions. It takes a while,(haven't even started yet) what with financial forms and all that they entail, endless calls, but suffice it to say they will pay all but $20.00 on a $2,700 med. That would surmount to a month at a time. I don't quite remember how I found them,my memory is not my strong suit anymore, but I got a call from them first, I didn't call them. I hope I have been of some help to you. You might want to first check w/your Dr., than the MS society and I am sure they can direct you. Hope some of this helps. Marny
Thanks so much for you response, I will have to check into that right away. Again I appreciate your help!!! Good Luck to you! Jill
