MSAA Hosts an Important Healthcare Update Webinar for People with Multiple Sclerosis
The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) will hold a live webinar on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for individuals with multiple sclerosis on November 19, 2013 at 8 pm Eastern Standard Time. Titled The New Insurance Marketplace and MS, this one-hour webinar will provide an understandable explanation of the new health insurance Marketplace with specific information on key areas that will significantly impact the multiple sclerosis community. Please visit mymsaa.org to register for this webinar and for more information about the ACA and MS. For questions, please contact MSAA’s Helpline at (800) 532-7667 or via email at MSquestions@mymsaa.org.
Since MS is a highly individualized and expensive disease to manage, the MS community must consider numerous factors when looking at insurance options. The New Insurance Marketplace and MS webinar will address critical issues such as access to medication and step-therapy determinations that will affect individuals with MS as they prepare to select their insurance through the Marketplace. As an additional resource, MSAA recently published a new brochure titled The Affordable Care Act and Multiple Sclerosis. This brochure is now available on MSAA’s website along with an archived version of a recent webinar on Medicare insurance and the ACA.
