    Hi mb55,

    Thank you for your post! It is wonderful to hear you feel healthy, however I am sorry to hear that your insurance denied medication coverage. It can be so frustrating to come across that type of roadblock to treatment. I thought you would be interested in the following articles – https://hepatitisc.net/living/paying-for-hepatitis-c-treatment/, https://hepatitisc.net/living/navigating-hcv-prior-authorization/, https://hepatitisc.net/living/hepatitis-c-linkage-to-care-help-finding-care-accessing-treatment/. They discuss ways to obtain treatment and what to do when insurance denies coverage. I hope you find them helpful! Please keep us posted on your progress. We love hearing from you.

    Warmly,
