Hello everyone, I have a question regarding insurances and the HSCT treatment for MS. I haven’t yet been diagnosed, but I am currently facing this potentiality and I like to be ahead of what could be coming; for the info, I have my MRIs in a couple of weeks.
I live in continental Europe, and I was wondering if there are some insurances that would cover, partially or fully, HSCT abroad if I was to be diagnosed (i.e. in facilities such as the ones in Chicago, Russia and Mexico). The treatment cost varies between 50,000 US dollar to 120,000 US dollar (yeah, expensive I know). It seems that a lot of people are exclusively relying on personal funds, which is why I am wondering whether certain insurances could potentially help in such a situation?
While I respect the fact that some people would not consider HSCT as a viable option, whatever their reasons are, I came to my own conclusion that if I was to be diagnosed, I would do anything to try this treatment while still being in the early stage of the disease; if I manage to get the money, of course.
Any of your opinion is welcomed, from MSers or potential ones.
Wishing everyone a great day!
