What’s New

Supporting patients with MS just got better

The MS Alliance Pharmacy Referral Program allows pharmacists to refer patients currently prescribed either Plegridy or Tecfidera to the Patient Support Program called MS Alliance.

For Tecfidera patients, there is now an additional section titled ‘Tecfidera Patient Counselling Points For Pharmacist’ designed to assist the pharmacist in providing additional education and support for patients taking Tecfidera. There is no cost to the pharmacy or patient.

By introducing the MS Alliance referral program to eligible patients, your pharmacy is eligible to receive a pharmacy referral fee* of:
