I am new to this site, so I would like to introduce myself. I am a retired lawyer with Relapsing MS. I was diagnosed 6 years ago. My current disease modifying therapy is Tecfidera, and it seems to be a good fit. I use Acthar Gel for relapses. My biggest concern is the expense of these medications. While the drug companies offer financial help, I am unable to receive it because I am on Medicare Part D, and the Social Security Act prohibits drug companies from providing assistance to patients on government-assisted prescription plans. Accordingly, many people with rare or orphan diseases cannot get their lifesaving medications. Is anyone else caught in this trap??
