my liver is dying

I have Hep-c and stage 3 fibrosis. I can't get medication because I have not been sober for 6 months. I have been sober for 2 months. My question is that legal and what test can they do for 6 months sobriety. I totally plan on not drinking again. I need this medication because the Hep-c along with fibrosis is killing my liver.

I fought with my insurance company for 8 months to get non ribavirin treatment as I already have depression. Harvoni is not approved for my genotype although my gastroenterologist knew it would cure me. Each denial had a reason. When Epculsa came out I was excited. Then I was denied because it was not in formulary steps. I knew I was close. The outsourced pharmacy said they would submit prescription every month. Finally in October I was approved. The pharmacy took care of having the copay paid.

I am at wits end and in desperate need of help with working with Allegiance/\Cigna which continually denies the medication to treat my life threatening illness. We have Allegiance\Cigna managing the employee self funded policy as my wife works for the county\ Allegiance \ Cigna approved Harvoni for a 12 week treatment after a liver biospsy showing I had F4 Cirrhosis on March 3, 2015 my gastro never suggested testing for resistance-associated variants ( RAVs) prior to requesting the medication

Thank you for sharing your story. I have a Kaiser Permanente CA and the doctors are the same. The patients choose to wait for treatment and they are hoping you will go away and go to different insurer next time. I also read online as a member I cannot sue Kaiser in court and it has to go to arbitration. I decided to fight this and I just submit my stories to ABC and NBC and hopefully they will want to talk to me more and we can make the public more aware about this issues.

and to add to my first comment, what about infecting others??? isnt that important? i wonder how it feels to deny so many people. i wonder how it feels to have to deny a mother these vital medications. i wonder if they feel any guilt or remorse. how can you deny anyone something you know will save not only their life but their quality of life. to save them from a life long disability. so maybe they can continue contributing to our world. isnt that a good enough reason to give it to everyone?
