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.
you could also look into clinical trials. i'm doing one and receiving top medical care with one of the top liver specialists for free. check out the website clinicaltrials.org. good luck to you. belle
sorry, try clinicaltrials.gov. belle
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.
