These programs are designed to help patients who don't have prescription drug insurance coverage and can't afford to pay for medications get the drugs they need at reduced or no cost. Most Medicaid and Medicare plans also provide coverage for Hepatitis C treatment drugs.
You need to be under a doctor's care to select drugs for treatment and fill out the forms for patient assistance.
If you want to learn more about the programs the pharmaceutical companies offer, you can find information on our site, www.hepatitiscmsg.org. Hit the Resources tab (above) and go to the Assistance Programs page. Phone numbers and web links to the pharmaceutical company programs are provided*.
If you have Medicaid or Medicare coverage, check with your doctor and your plan to learn about Hepatitis C drug coverage.
Don't give up! Help is available to get the drugs you need to treat and cure Hepatitis C.
