Hepatitis C Patient and Harvoni Cost

 Life of Hepatitis C Patients Before Generic Harvoni, Generic Epclusa or Generic Sovaldi Lets replace Pegasys with generic Harvoni, the treatment time would have been only 12 weeks. Imagine if they knew what sofosbuvir price was in early 2014, their jaws would have dropped. 48 weeks ?! Hey, when did who decide that genotype 2 should be treated for 48 weeks?  I've thought 24 seeks was presribed for type 2, but my hep dr. today said he is treating for 48 weeks except in cases of geno 3. Is this just his practice, or are we losing this advantage, us type 2's? The doc said they were following the 24 week concept until just recently.  Too bad I waited!  I feel like when I was back in college, and they had a speech class requirement, unitl I took it,and the requirement was dropped. There was an advanced math requirement until I took calculus, and the requirement was dropped the next year, and so on.  In this case, its the reverse, but the result is the same:  god,or life, or the general perversity of the universe creates difficulties exquisitely matched to the timing of my life choices. Anyway, this is still to be considered by me.  I haven't started tx yet, although I expect to, and how long I keep at it is of course up to me, anyway...........but still. I also found out that getting insurance coverage for Pegasys is tricky.  Aetna will cover it only if purchased through certain vendors, only y mail, doc must make special calls, and so on.  Weird.  The goal, of course, is to discourage the insurer having to do what we pay premiums for:  cover the medicine and doctoring we need.  Instead, they will steer us to the business deals most advantageous to them, or find a way to refuse the claim.

Good Samaritan helping patients access hep C medication.

Harvoni cost is $84,000 in the US and in Europe its about $75,000 a little less. According to Dr. Wooden.

Still not a bargain for most hepatitis C patients.  I am going to share with you my story of the cost of Harvoni and how I got it for a lot less and got cured.

“Lets replace Pegasys with Harvoni, the treatment time would have been only 12 weeks.”

Those were the exact words Dr. Wooden at Mayo told me.  He said, you are are wasting your time.

Do not wait for the government or anyone to help you get your Harvoni.  The longer your wait the more risk you are taking.  The medicine is now available in India at a fraction of the price.

Dr. Wooden was very stern with me, I understand his perspective, he’s had a lot of patients with hep C come to him over the last 30 years of his practice.  Its just hard for me to pull the trigger.

The Help

Until the his nurse walked in and said, “hey, I think you dropped this”.

I know I didn’t drop anything but it was a HUGE hint that nurse Sheryl gave me.

It was number and a name of a website.

I came home and immediately google the company and I saw the non profit link and I clicked and read about 100 plus stories of people getting their meds through this website at all costs.

I said to myself, its my turn to get cured.

Kris, answered the phone and was very informative and gave me lots of courage.

Same goes for Melissa.

After 12 weeks treatment, I was cured.

The Follow Up

Who called to check on me, none other than a nurse from Sunny Pharma, Nancy.

She was so gracious and so kind and was very sincere but a little stern with my bad habits.

I just want to say thank you folks for helping me so much.  I really have to thank Dr.Wooden from the Mayo Clinic for guiding me and the wonderful nurse Sheryl.

Harvoni cost is of no concern to me now and it should not be for anyone else that needs it for their specific genotype.

Its affordable and you can live a long healthy life after you are done with your treatment.

Thank you and God bless you wonderful people for making a BIG difference in the life of hepatitis C positive people.

48 weeks ?! (Yikes)

Hey, when did who decide that genotype 2 should be treated for 48 weeks?

I’ve thought 24 seeks was presribed for type 2, but my hep dr. today said he is treating for 48 weeks except in cases of geno 3.

Is this just his practice, or are we losing this advantage, us type 2’s?

Anyway, this is still to be considered by me.

I haven’t started tx yet, although I expect to, and how long I keep at it is of course up to me, anyway………..but still.

I also found out that getting insurance coverage for Pegasys is tricky.

This is Weird

The goal, of course, is to discourage the insurer having to do what we pay premiums for:  cover the medicine and doctoring we need.

Instead, they will steer us to the business deals most advantageous to them, or find a way to refuse the claim.
