The MSAA MRI Access Fund assists individuals who are uninsured or under insured acquire a cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam to help determine a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis or evaluate current MS disease progression. MSAA will work with eligible individuals, physicians, imaging centers and insurers to help fund the necessary MRI.
About this Program
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a valuable tool for diagnosing multiple sclerosis and tracking its progression. Both aspects are critically important in helping people find answers, monitor disease activity, and make informed treatment and healthcare decisions. Unfortunately many people lack the financial means or adequate health insurance coverage to acquire the necessary MRI. Recognizing this, MSAA created the MRI Access Fund.
What services are provided through the MRI Access Fund?
Insurance payment assistance: For those of low/moderate income who have medical insurance (including Medicare) and are not able to meet the co-insurance, the MRI Access Fund will assist in covering the remaining co-insurance balance of the MRI cost, up to a specified maximum amount.
Full payment: For those of low/moderate income who do not have medical insurance or cannot afford their insurance deductible, the MRI Access Fund will pay for the MRI through contracted imaging centers across the country.
