Yes, it should be, if the meds are authorized by your ins co for you. It may take a few weeks to be authorized.

Hello, yes the medications for HCV were covered by my insurance and most others.  You do have to get pre approval but the doctors office knows how to do that.

There are differences between policies so its hard to be sure but in my case my BCBS plan covered all the treatment meds (after pre-approval). I got them from the mail order pharmacy program and it only cost me $75 copayment/per drug for 3-month supplies of Incivek and interferon, and nothing for the ribavirin. Good luck!

Be careful make sure your fully covered
I had copays of 2500$
If you run into that there are programs through the drug manufacturers themselves and also look into
