“In November 2014, my doctor prescribed Harvoni for 8 weeks. My insurance company denied it. Then he prescribed Viekira Pak w/ ribavirin for 12 weeks. My insurance denied that, as well. Both times, the letters, more or less, stated my numbers didn't meet their requirements for treatment. In other words, I’m not sick enough.”
