Treatment recommendation

Your doctor will ask for a hepatitis C viral load test.  The test will let your doctor know if its necessary to pursue treatment or not.

If the viral load is very low then most probably your physician will hold off on treatment, because of the $75,000 cost.

Your insurance company (technically) will only pay if you have a fibroscan of 3 and above.

Don’t wait to get lucky.  If you have hepatitis C, get treated right away.  Its affordable and accessible.

All generic versions of Harvoni , Sovaldi and Epclusa are manufactured under the license of Gilead Sciences and the FDA.
