MS SOCIETY HINTS FOR CMS DRUG CARD WEBSITE
our Weekly Alert of August 12, 2004, the Center for Medicare Advocacy
reviewed the Medicare Discount Drug Cards. One of the issues we raised
concerned the difficulty, for people who use certain MS drugs, of entering the
correct frequency and dosage amounts in the Medicare drug card web site.
This information must be entered on the site in order to obtain price
comparisons. After consultation
with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the National
Multiple Sclerosis Society developed instructions to assist people who are
researching MS drugs. The Center
for Medicare Advocacy is working with the MS Society to enhance understanding
about this and other Medicare coverage issues for people with MS.
The MS Society’s instructions for using the CMS
website may be found at http://www.nationalmssociety.org/discount_cards.asp.
