    I attended a Heuga Center program in Sept. of 2001.  The attitude of Jimmie Heuga and the work of the organization were quite inspirational and had a real impact on my life. This organization taught me that though exercise is not a cure for MS, it helps one deal better with the deficits created on a cellular level. Many thanks for all that you do!"

    MSAA's MRI Institute Offers No-Cost MRIs for People with MS

    Posted Wednesday, February 9, 2011

    News from Multiple Sclerosis Association of America
    Supported by a charitable contribution from EMD Serono and Pfizer, the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America's MRI Institute is a national program to assist individuals with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in acquiring one follow-up Cranial MRI per year. Patients and their physicians can use this information to evaluate disease progression and better manage the ever-changing course of MS.

    The MSAA MRI Institute will work with eligible individuals, their doctor, imaging centers and insurers to help fund the necessary MRI. Anyone needing an MRI exam specifically to determine a diagnosis of MS is not eligible and can contact MSAA about the MRI Diagnostic fund.

    For those of low/moderate income who have medical insurance (including Medicare) but are unable to meet the co-payment, the MRI Institute will work to cover the remaining balance of the MRI test. For those of low/moderate income who do not have medical insurance or cannot afford the deductible on their insurance, the MRI Institute will work to pay for the MRI at a negotiated discount rate from contracted imaging centers across the country.

    To learn more or to download the MRI Institute application, visit or call 800-532-7667, ext 120.
