Health Insurance

will not pay

  • By Susan Simon Moderator

    Hi David. Welcome to Hepatitisc.net. I am one of the moderators here and my name is Sue. I am sorry to hear that Medicaid will not pay for your fiancee’s treatment. Please give us some more information. If you can tell us what State she lives in and which treatment her doctor has prescribed, I will try to research it for you and get her some help.

      We live in Wisconsin. Her doctor has not prescribed anything. Wisconsin Medicaid is our insurance. Please help in any way possible. I want to surprise her with getting her help. Thanks

    David, I will do my level best. I am assuming she is a genotype 1. Can you confirm that? I need to know if she is eligible for the Gilead drugs and/or the Abbvie drugs. Has she treated before with either Incivek or Victrelis? Also, does she know her stage of liver disease? I am not being nosey. I need to know these things so I know which drug company to ask about patient assistance. Some drugs are contraindicated depending on genotype and what treatments she has already tried.

    I will also look at clinical trials if there are any in Wisconsin at this time.
