How do I get prescribed medication without a job?
I have a good job, here in FL, as an Office Manager. I am trying to plan a move to CA and do not have a job there, nor am I sure how long it will take me to land a job there. I take a prescribed medication for MS and will, of course, have to continue taking it. This is where my questions come in. Were I not taking it I would just pack up and go and land a job with insurance as soon as I could. But I cannot do that - I need to make sure I have a way to get the medication (Avonex) coming to me seamlessly, without break. I am a 38 yr old F. Does anyone know what the steps are that I need to take right now? I suspect it must have something to do with Medicare but I have never applied for things like that and have no idea what it consists of. First of all, I imagine I cannot apply for that until I have moved to CA and have no job. In other words, I could not go tomorrow, here, and apply for Medicare when I am employed here, right? Also, is Medicare guaranteed to cover this for me? Thx

If you can't get COBRA, try a Provider Access Organization. The dental plan I currently use is only $11.95 a month and I receive wonderful discounts on vision, prescription, dental, and chiropractic services. There are no caps or deductibles. So this may be an alternative for you until you can get insurance again. Here... More
