Other Key Points About Harvoni

- A 12 week treatment is prescribed for patients that have yet to be treated, regardless if they have cirrhosis or not.
- Although clinical trials had high cure rates, Harvoni is not approved to fight HIV/HCV co-infections as of this writing.
- Harvoni and Hepcinat LP are leading drugs to cure HCV, but there is a small chance of side effects occurring during treatment.
Your Insurance Provider
Many insurance companies will cover the cost of Harvoni. But most people will probably not get approved by their providers. There has been quite a push back from state providers such as Medicaid.
Some states force patients to go through a HCV qualification test. The test is really to prove that cirrhosis of the liver is present. If you have the proof your liver is in poor health, they will consider it life threatening and approve treatment.
In addition, the folks that approve your insurance want you to have a fibroscan of 3 and below. That is the only way many state insurance companies will provide Harvoni or any other hepatitis C treatment.
Harvoni generic price has been reduced from $84,000 to $24,000, still way too expensive. You can still purchase it for about $800 from India.
Something to think about.
You can beat hepatitis C, we will help you.
Just don’t be one of those patients that is not doing well at all and keeps waiting it out.
The longer you wait the more damage you will have on your liver, then the worst case scenario is liver failure.
By that time, Harvoni is not going to help you at all.
Get treated ASAP!
