I'm assuming your talking about treatment for HVC. Here is a link to PPO insurance that will take you with a pre-existing condition....Hell, its called the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan. (Obama Care) Anyways, I have it....its cheap...they pay for everything without questioning if its "medically necessary".  The monthly premium is very affordable. Its worth a look.

you can apply to the pharm companies for assistance. If you qualify (under 50k per year) you can get the meds for free.
Best of luck

Check with your Social services office, I live in Las Vegas. After being hospitalized for an unrelated issue, it was found my VL, and enzymes were out of whack, and I was w sent  to a wellness center. Where I met my Hep C Doc., long story short because I had no insurance I was directed to PEGAssist. You'll find them at www.pegasys.com or call 1-877-734-2797. They are actually very helpful and have covered the costs of my medication, both the copegus( ribavirin) and the pegasys(peginterferon-alfa-2a). They are connected to the manufacture,Roche.
