does anyone have any suggestions about applying for assistance. medicaid in my state is only available to pregnant woman, single family w/kids, and a few other ones that aren't me. someone said welfare office, isn't that the same thing? i found plenty of companies that will fund the tx, but im not that far yet. just diagnosed and have no md and no insurance. if i find govt assistance do i tell them about this pre-existing condition? so confused but want to get to a dr so i can get more information about genotype and tx.
The government already knows you have Hep C. Its on record
You can get assistance with paying for labs from Quest.
You can also sometimes get charity care from indivisual hospitals and clinics. Call around and ask. Do make or get copies of EVERYTHING, especially lab results. This is very important. Good luck.
