The Multiple Sclerosis Center of Greater Washington

Health Care the way you imagined

CLINICAL TRIALS

In addition to providing you with the care you deserve, the Center is involved in the latest Multiple Sclerosis research. Along with familiar disease modifying options, there are new innovative therapies being developed. The MS Center is actively participating in these new treatments, and often has them available as clinical trials for patients. By offering these clinical trials to our patients, we are expanding their treatment options.

MS TREATMENT

The management of MS involves decreasing signs of disease progression, in addition to treating the day to day symptoms that affect a person’s quality of life. Successful Multiple Sclerosis therapy involves traveling down both of these paths and receiving guidance to do so. The menu of options for the treatment of MS has become increasingly more complex, and you deserve a personalized care plan that fits your MS and you.

INFUSION SERVICES

In our infusion suite, you will find a relaxed, friendly environment. What you do with that time is up to you: finish up work with complimentary Wi-Fi, catch up on your reading, watch a movie from our DVD selection (or bring your own) or nap. Know that you are in good hands.

Introducing the MRI Access Fund

MRI Access Fund Forward Visit mymsaa.org Donate to MSAA
MSAA Merges MRI Programs into the MRI Access Fund For more than 12 years, MSAA has successfully operated two programs that provide magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams for individuals who need assistance to confirm a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis or track its disease progression. Through the expansion of new corporate support, MSAA has been able to combine the MRI Diagnostic and Institute programs into one service as well as increase the number of clients served in 2015. MSAA MRI Access Fund Although the name has changed to the MRI Access Fund, the program will operate in the same manner – assisting people who do not have adequate insurance coverage or the financial means necessary to acquire a cranial MRI. Through the MRI Access Fund:
  • MSAA will cover the remaining cost of a person’s co-insurance balance
  • Or pay for an MRI through contracted imaging centers for qualified candidates.
Program applicants must meet income requirements, receive approval from MSAA prior to having an MRI (no reimbursements for previous MRIs), and cannot exceed one MSAA-funded MRI exam within a 24-month period. If you have discussed with your physician the need for an MRI to aid in diagnosing multiple sclerosis or evaluating disease progression and need assistance, please download the MSAA MRI Access Fund application or contact MSAA at (800) 532-7667, extension 120, for additional information or to receive a copy in the mail.

MOTTO TO LIVE BY

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming,”WOO HOO, what a ride!”
