What meds do you plan to be on?  You said you have applied to organizations but you will need to apply to the pharmaceutical companies.  Vertex (drug - Incevik) offers a coupon to help cover the copay.  The specialty pharmacy I am using also found a coupon for the copay for the PegIntron.  I don't know of any coupons for the ribavirin but since you can get that in generic, it is pretty reasonable.

THis is a form from VErtex but I suggest callng the number at the bottom of the form and talking to someone.

This is for the PegIntron coupon.

This is information on the other PI - Victrelis.

Good luck

I would wonder about your being on Medicare and SS at 52.  Do you have cirrhosis as well?  Just curious.  It would help people know what to recommend to you.

I was on  treatment before I had my transplant.  I did not have ins. My doctor sign me up with a program thru the drug company. Check with your doctor. I am starting my post transplant treatment in about week. Thank God I have Medicare and Medicaid this time. But I know it still exist because she offered it to me again until she saw that I had insurance.  Good luck.
