Travelling long term and Treatment

quick question everyone now I live in Australia have been on tysabri for years and may be moving to Canada for a few years. I have been doing some research on this myself but found little to nothing.

I was hoping for some advice on moving countries and starting up my treatments there and how hard it is to set up, like im pretty confident ill have to start seeing a specialist over there but more just costs of treatments and organising to stay on the treatment that has been working for me.

thanks in advance

Hi @brando, what Province of Canada … Health care is under provincial jurisdiction and services, including MS clinics (who are the only neuros who have the special authority to prescribe ms meds) are part of that system, at least that’s my British Columbia experience. I’d check out your destination province’s government website for a ministry of health and services residency requirements and wait times. Also, the National MS society may also be a source of information for you, they have provincial chapters.

The max prescription I can fill (Copaxone) is a 90 day/3 months at a time. Recommend bringing as much of your Rx as you can to tide you over the transition.
