In brief: Suggest

Contact your local MS Society, and if you have a doctor, have him/her decide on a choice of medication, and contact the manufacturer, such as Biogen, Teva, or Novartis, as all have compassionate programs to provide inexpensive fees, or even, free medications.
Good luck and all the best.

In brief: Patient assistance

Several large pharmaceutical companies have patient assistance programs, to help uninsured or under-insured people.
Your ms doctor or hospital social worker should be able to help guide you. If generic medications are available and deemed medically necessary, typically large supermarkets offer the lowest charge. Lastly, some use canadian medication suppliers.

In brief: You

You have a few options.
The first would be to contact your local county health facility and inquire about programs for people who have no insurance and are in need of treatment. Another option would be to contact the pharmaceutical company that manufactures the medication you need an inquire about any patient assistance programs. A long shot would be to research any ongoing clinical trials for ms and see if you are a candidate and then consider if this is an option for you. Good luck!
