    My dad just got permanetly laid off from his job. My mom has mulitple sceloris (MS). She is on disability and medicare part A. I was just going to put her on an MA plan and get a drug plan. After putting her prescriptions on the medicare website to find her the best drug plan, I found horrible results. She takes a shot called avonex. It costs 2300 per month with no insurance, on the best Part D plan it would cost $400. So she would be paying $500 for her prescriptions plus co-pays for any edoc visits and MRI's and what not. I am sure cobra will cost them more than that.

    Is there any where she can get her avonex shot for cheaper? If we could do that it would save a bunch of money. Thanks in advance.
