  • Is having Parkinson’s expensive?

    Posted by Mary Beth Skylis on September 13, 2021 at 7:59 am

    My Dad is fortunate to have medical insurance that pays for many of his appointments for Parkinson’s disease. But I know there are many people without that same privilege. Is having Parkinson’s expensive? And what are some ways you’ve been able to find financial support throughout your journey?

    My health insurances-Medicare, UMR single, UMR family, and Champus- cover all my doctors’ appointments and testing in full. I’m also able to use Scott Air Force Base Pharmacy so my prescriptions are paid for in full.
    I am so fortunate to have such great coverage at this time when I need it the most!
