NeedyMeds.org and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society announce a new source of information on multiple sclerosis medications and the financial help available for those living with the disease.
(Vocus) May 21, 2009 -- NeedyMeds, a national nonprofit, added a new resource page to its Web site tailored for those with multiple sclerosis. The page is a multiple sclerosis-specific source of help for those looking for information on the disease and financial resources to help assist with the cost of medications.
The resource page, created in collaboration with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, provides information on this disease including an overview, frequently asked questions, research, and more. In addition, the page lists financial resources that help with the cost of the drugs used to treat multiple sclerosis, free clinics, and programs that provide other types of financial assistance.
This comprehensive information source is found at www.needymeds.org/resourcepages/ms.shtml or on the NeedyMeds homepage at needymeds.org.
NeedyMeds has the most comprehensive and reliable database of patient assistance programs available. All the information is free, easy to access, and updated regularly. There is no registration process or need for users to enter any personal information.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society offers an information and referral line, support groups, patient education and research. Links to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and its chapters, programs and services are also found on the resource page.
This collaboration of NeedyMeds and the National MS Society was created to reach a larger group of people needing support and assistance in a time of shrinking resources. Both organizations are committed to serving those in need.
NeedyMeds, a Massachusetts-based nonprofit, is a comprehensive and reliable source of information on assistance available for people having difficulties paying for their medications or health care. The Web site (www.needymeds.org) is visited by approximately 12,000 people each workday. All of NeedyMeds' information is always free, easy to access, and updated regularly. Unlike similar sites, NeedyMeds requires no registration. All the information is easily printed.
