Copaxone in Singapore as an Australian

Hi everyone,

One of my family members has MS and in Australia he comes under our Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, so Copaxone is affordable. He is moving to Singapore for two years however and I was wondering whether anyone has any experience as an Australian moving overseas with MS and how you went about it in terms of being able to afford the drug.

Thanks very much in advance for your time.

Hi everyone,

A family member of mine has MS and comes under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme in Australia, therefore his copaxone is subsidised to a manageable level. He is moving to Singapore however and can't quite work out how to work it without having to come back to Australia every 6 months. Does anyone have any experience in this situation?

Thank you for your time.
