MSU partners with NeedyMed’s to provide prescription discounts

On August 1, 2018, as part of its continuing effort to empower the myositis community, Myositis Support and Understanding Association, Inc. (MSU) has entered into a partnership with NeedyMeds to provide members with access to prescription discounts through the NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card.

A part of the determination to partner with is based on its status as a national non-profit and its like mission, “dedicated to educating and empowering those seeking affordable healthcare,” similar to that of MSU.
