nw meds

I havent been on here for a very long time. I have been svr for over three years now :) and that's a wonderful thing. My question is about the new meds, one pill a day. I have a very dear friend who is now going through this and can not get approved by her insurance to get this med. Any thoughts? Is there a trick or anyone she can contact? Her dr. says he's doing all he can but insurance wont budge :(

Harvoni is one of the new drugs.  I just finished a 12 week treatment in March and I have reached SVR. There are others depending on your friends situation.  The organization that makes Harvoni can be found here

www.gilead.com

Good luck

Try going through Support Path. It is a patient assistance program so people can get Harvoni for treatment. She can call them, but her doctor should contact them and fill out the paperwork to get the ball rolling.

Here is the link to the website and contact information:
