Society Joins 33 Organizations Urging "Patient-First" Policy Agenda

October 15, 2020

The National MS Society has joined 33 national organizations representing millions of people with pre-existing conditions announcing the release of our top priorities for the next Administration. “The 100 Days Agenda: A Patient-First Blueprint,” is a first-of-its-kind collaboration that outlines specific steps the President and other elected officials can take immediately after they are sworn into office to protect access to affordable and adequate health coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.   

Released 10 years after the Affordable Care Act became law, the policy agenda provides guidance on how policymakers, including the Administration, can leverage each of the three branches of government to protect patients and strengthen our system of care. It also includes steps policymakers can take to address harmful policies that undermine patient protections, including protections for those with pre-existing conditions.  Click here for a one page summary of the 30+ page agenda.  

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system. Currently there is no cure. Symptoms vary from person to person and may include disabling fatigue, mobility challenges, cognitive changes, and vision issues. An estimated 1 million people live with MS in the United States. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical to minimize disability. Significant progress is being made to achieve a world free of MS.
