Treatment in Thailand

I am a expat living in Thailand. I have just been offered treatment Pegintron. http://www.pegintron.com/peg/application.

24 weeks treatment genotype 3 is $8563.00

The ribavirin is included in this price.

Doctor and blood tests. liver function, viral load, ect  about $2,000 for 24 week.

Total = about $10,560 for 24 week treatment.

To someone who knows--- is this a good price??

Yes.  I once figured cost for 48 weeks at about $30,000 just for drugs; did not factor in bloodwork and visits.  24 weeks for just meds would be $15000.  Go for it.
