HEP-C TREATMENT FUNDING
I am wondering how/if its possible to get Hep-C treatment? I tried the Welfare route but got stonewalled! Is there anywhere/on who can help with suggestions or places to go for answers?

  There are some programs such as the Patient Assistance Program that can pay for medications if you are not eligible for Medicaid but cannot afford other insurance options.

I think the best way for free treatment is going through a Study Trail – You can look them up if they need anyone at this link below.  There are different locations just hope there is one close to you soon…  Hope this helps. This is what I’m doing for my treatment.

As Debra mentioned above the best way would be to try to get into a trial.There are some good ones going on now and you will get excellent care and the meds and labs etc would be free.Some trials even will pay you for participation.Seeing as the new meds cost around 8000.00 per month(Depending if you needed the 3 rd drug) this would be the easy way to get tx.Hopefully there will be one not to far from you good luck  cindy

If you qualify they will give you the drugs for free but you will still have the cost of doctors visits and lab work. I found treatment though a clinical trial as well but they can be tricky best to do your research before entering, I was lucky and found one that is all FDA approved drugs and is open label so no surprises. I wish you all the best moving foward.

There are several from canada on this forum, so hopefully they can give you some guidance for assistance in addition to the link for assistance from the phamas provided above.  I think with the colder temperatures, they're just moving a little slower, lol.
