If your country's healthcare system or insurer have told you that you're not covered for hepatitis C treatment, the cost of getting your hep C cured will often be unaffordable. Although there are patient assistance programs to help with the cost, the process can be difficult to navigate and applications are often denied if not made properly.
Even if you have health insurance - or live in a country with with a national healthcare system - these powerful institutions that are meant to pay often avoid coverage for their own financial benefit.
The cost of certain hep C prescriptions can vary by thousand of dollars between different pharmacies.
'Discounted' unregulated online sources can be risky and end up being a waste of money and even causing you harm.
