If you are a myasthenia gravis patient struggling with high medical costs, our Patient Assistance Program may be able to provide some relief. Our program will cover the cost of medical treatment and medication up to $1,000 per year per person, to the extent funds are available. The program paid $10,000 in reimbursements in 2016, and still has funds available for 2017 as of September 1, 2017.
- To be eligible, 1) your doctor must confirm you have myasthenia gravis, 2) you must live in Illinois, Indiana, or Wisconsin, and 3) you need to explain and show proof of your financial situation.
- Eligible expenses include doctor bills, prescription medication costs, and expenses for durable medical equipment that remain after insurance has paid its portion.
- If you already have paid your portion of your medical bills, you can submit your expenses, and if approved, the reimbursement will be paid directly to you.

Keep in mind these costs do not need to be directly related to treatment for myasthenia gravis but may be for any medical treatment or prescription drug cost you have incurred.
