Celebrating your dedication: Thank you!

WAS_2016_eNewsDec16-CelebratingTY-thumbLocal community members like you are strengthening the MS movement every day and that’s something to celebrate! Over the past month, more than 250 of our friends and supporters gathered at the Celebrating YOU appreciation events (and one holiday party) in Alaska, Montana and Washington to honor stellar teams and volunteers, and celebrate a successful year.


Health insurance open enrollment: Maximize your coverage

WAS_2016_eNews-Dec16-OpenEnrollment-thumbDuring open enrollment, you have the opportunity to research, understand your options and enroll in the health insurance plan that offers the best coverage for the services and medications you need, at the lowest possible cost. Even if you like your current plan, costs and coverage may change in the coming next year. Before you make a decision, compare Medicare (closes tomorrow, Dec. 7), Marketplace (closes Jan. 31) and employer plans, then call an MS Navigator at 1-800-344-4867 to help you better understand your choices.
