For those cirrhotics out there like myself who suffer from hepatic encephalopathy (HE)...
For those of you who are taking Xifaxan (Rifaximin) for your symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy (HE), there will be a program beginning in May that will help with managing your symptoms of HE and reducing your co-pay costs. I have a co-pay of $40 per month and the cost of Xifaxan is about $1,500 per month, so this is a program worth checking out.
From the website..
"The program begins in late May, a H.E.L.P. (the Hepatic Encephalopathy Living Program) representative will call patients to finalize enrollment. We’ll also mail patients welcome kits that show them how to start using H.E.L.P. to manage hepatic encephalopathy, also known as HE. The welcome kit will contain a copay assistance card and educational materials about HE."
The program entails:
* A 24-hour toll-free support hotline
* Copay assistance for eligible patients
* Educational resources
* Treatment adherence support
*Note: Only patients who are at risk of overt hepatic encephalopathy recurrence are eligible for this program.

It's a good thing that there are co-pay assistance programs like Atripla. But let's face it not all are receiving that kind of health benefit assistance. So it is still necessary to have a good and fair health plan. Fairly much everyone knows what a health insurance plan is like. However, option forms of healthcare coverage do not get talked about as much as general health care coverage does. In fact, more people are signing up for them countrywide. Consumer-driven health plans are becoming more prevalent, and some community representatives are pressing to boost the number of people enrolled in them. Here is the proof: [url=http://personalmoneynetwork.com/moneyblog/2011/08/02/consumer-driven-health-plans/]More people enrolling in consumer-driven health plans[/url].
