Wellness Incentive Program
Because exercise is so important to the health of those with MS, the Kentucky-Southeast Indiana Chapter has introduced an incentive for everyone with MS regardless of income. The Wellness Incentive Program provides funding for up to $150 per year to help defray the costs of joining an exercise facility or participating in recreation classes.
