Financial help available for MPS VII patients

The Assistance Fund, an independent charitable patient assistance foundation that helps patients and families facing high medical out-of-pocket costs, has launched a financial support initiative for MPS VII patients and their families. The program offers funds that can be used for copayments, health insurance premiums and incidental medical expenses.

“Individuals with MPS VII face a lifetime of medical interventions to improve their quality of life and slow the progression of the disease,” said Terri Klein, interim CEO and director of development and operations at the National MPS Society. “Treatment is vital to help prevent irreversible organ and tissue damage, but the high costs associated with care can make it out of reach for many families. With support from The Assistance Fund, more patients with MPS VII will undergo the treatment regimens that can best preserve their health.”
