Where can I find information on Medicare benefits for people with MS?

Individuals disabled by multiple sclerosis (MS) are eligible to receive Medicare benefits. Medicare can be confusing, even for people who are familiar with our nation’s healthcare system. The Center for Medicare Advocacy’s (CMA) website hosts an information section that has what you need to make informed decisions. The CMA, established in 1986, is a national nonprofit, nonpartisan law organization that provides education, advocacy and legal assistance to help senior citizens and people with disabilities, such as MS, obtain fair access to Medicare and necessary health care. Visit www.medicareadvocacy.org to learn about Medicare and its services, the differences between Medicare and Medicaid, and eligibility requirements.

The CMA website is most detailed when it comes to coverage of MS under Medicare.
