        My Thanks to the MS Foundation for the following to articles:

      Help Support Medicare Part D Coverage for Off-label Drugs for People with Multiple Sclerosis - Urge Congress to support the Part D Off-label Prescription Parity Act (H.R 1055). Doctors routinely prescribe drugs for off-label purposes to treat diseases that are not listed
          on the label based on their professional medical judgment. Most of these treatments are prescribed because “on-label” treatment does not exist or is unsuccessful. Thus, the current rules cause people living with MS and other chronic conditions to be denied medically necessary treatment that could vastly improve their quality of life because known uses that
          are “off-label” are not covered.

      Send in your support to your local congressman:

      Improving Access to Neurological Care - Request that Congress support legislation that would allow neurologists to qualify for Medicare payment incentives, in order to improve
         access to these providers for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS). This legislation will correct an omission in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590), which
          led to the exclusion of neurology from the list of specialties eligible to receive the Medicare payment incentives. Bill (S.597) would change this provision.

      Send in your support to your local congressman:
