I have had great treatment through the v.a. from diagnosis/ biop., to treatment options. almost all free. so check it out!   * 1 in ten, military vets. have hep. C.*  
             Aloha, R.

I had no idea that tx was free. I was honorably d/ced in '78. Where did you get the stats on one in ten?

FYI, don't get too excited, the status you are given depends on your income.  I applied, and they agreed that yes, I was eligible, BUT i was in like the very last H? group so I would never have received treatment because I made more money than the minimum allowed.  I also felt like I had good insurance, and there were more folks that needed help worse than I did, so I didn't petition for further review or anything....

good luck,
c.

I too am fighting the VA for hep c service connection. I was in Marines 69-72, stationed in Pendleton. I have been looking for buddy letters, or any other kind of help, and since I have researched day and night, I might have some info you don't have, so ask away! One comment to the person talking about treatment, drugs and the cost. I am on Peg-Intron and ribaviran. I ran out of insurance, and for some reason, didn't go to VA. I get my meds totally free of cost thru Scherling-Plough and their commitment to care program. My meds are Fed-ex'ed to me once a month, so if you have ran out of options, they are out there.
