MS ActiveSource will assist patients in the following ways (the guidelines are the same as for Avonex):
- If a person has insurance (including Medicare), he or she will receive co-pay assistance. The patient’s co-pay will be $10 monthly, and this program is ongoing and does not end.
- If the person has no insurance, he or she will be helped though the Access Program. The drug will be free for two years. There is an undisclosed financial eligibility criterion. After a year and a half, the person will need to reapply.
MS ActiveSource does not pay for any costs charged by the infusion center.
*There may be an annual cap that limits the amount of assistance that you can receive over one year, based on income.
