Hello Steve, I am sorry to hear you are feeling bad. Here is a link from Hep Mag which has a list of Patient Assistance programs which can help you when with treatment when uninsured. See this link:http://www.hepmag.com/articles/hepatitis_paps_copays_20506.shtml Also, I have an additional list of patient resources for assistance on my website, Life Beyond Hepatitis C, here is the link to our patient resources: http://www.lifebeyondhepatitisc.com/medical-information/financial-assistance/ If you know your genotype, viral load and any information from your last physicians visit would be helpful, but seek these out, and be persistent, the right help is out there for you. Keep us posted. You will be in my prayers as you seek the right resources and help. Blessings, Connie

Hi Robert, Thank you for sharing about what has happened. I am so sorry to hear you experienced a relapse. If you are a VA patient without other insurance I would recommend you to keep trying with the VA for the new treatment. I do not know what genotype (virus strain) you have, but there are new medications for all genotypes that were released in 2013 and continued new treatment approved recently. All of these have shorter treatment time, less side effects and higher cure rates than older treatment. No matter what don't give up! Keep urging the VA for the new treatment. You can also try to contact Gilead Sciences, Sovaldi Support Path and ask questions about assistance. http://www.mysupportpath.com/ Keep us posted on how you're doing. If you have further questions, feel free to let us know. You are in my prayers for open doors for new treatment and healing. Blessings, Connie

I was diagnosed with hep C. 2004. I took the year treatment shots, and pills. After the year, I was cured, then in 3 months, it returned. The VA hasn't done anything else. Where do I go to get the new treatment. Of the 12 side effects, I went through 12. Would like to know where I can get this treaent, as the VA is apparently not going to do anything. Appreciate any help.
