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.

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.
