MS Answers

One of the hardest parts of this disease is the cost of the "Disease Modifying Treatments" (DMT's). If your drug costs are unable to be covered by Provencal Government Premium Medical coverage due to your income level being higher then what your Provence gives out monthly, the cost of the medications can be prohibitive. I think the least expensive one sits around $1700 for a month's supply. Even when covered for prescriptions, there are expensive treatments for more advanced stages of MS that are not covered in some provinces.

This answer from our partners at MS Answers will explain how to cover these costs in the absence of prescription coverage (*Canada only). As always, a clear answer can be obtained by discussing this with the MS Clinic staff. Your local MS Nurse or Neurologist will ensure you understand the cost and payment options.
