What is Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA)?
Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA) is a condition that causes a person to have unexpected outbursts of involuntary crying or laughing. Persons with PBA do not have control of their emotional displays and can experience these episodes at any time. PBA can be associated with brain injury as well as neurologic disorders including multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and stroke.
Patients not only must deal with the social aspect of the disorder but also the high cost of treatment to address the condition.
PSI offers a program that addresses copayment assistance for persons diagnosed with Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA). We are dedicated to helping Medicare Part D patients who are unable to afford their co-payment or out of pocket expenses.
For those patients who qualify, PSI offers up to 100% of assistance for a period of one year or as funding allows.
Who can apply?
If you have Medicare Part D insurance and cannot afford your out of pocket costs for medication, PSI may be able to help.
