Advocacy - Join The MS Action Network


Advocacy


Join the MS Action Network, the center for advocacy at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Together, we represent the interests of people with MS as important policy decisions are made in both the public and private sectors. Our advocacy is focused on: federal funding for MS research; quality health care; long-term care; disability rights; and health insurance and prescription drug coverage. The MS Action Network works on these important issues at the federal, state and local levels.

The three Florida chapters of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society have partnered together to form MS-CAN. The mission of MS-CAN is to raise awareness of and interest in governmental issues and public policy that may affect the quality of life for people with MS and empower them to take effective action.

Following the decisions of several HMOs to reduce or drop their coverage of self-Injectables or increase the co-payments to an alarming 25% plus of the cost, the National MS Society South Florida Chapter launched an initiative in support of non-discrimination for access to MS treatments.
