I am having totally free treatment through clinical study. This is a hepatitis C study center by Weill Cornell Hospital in New York. They are the best because they just specialised on Hepatitis C.
I know it's been a while since you posted, but I was hoping you could let us know whether you were able to find a way to start treatment for him?
I was able to get into a clinical trial, which pays for everything, labs, meds, etc. that I found on a website you might want to check (below). Even though I have insurance, I was happy to get into this trial because I felt like I was getting treatment from a doctor who has specialized in Hep C for 20 years, and have been getting great care.
I believe you said you are in New Jersey, looks like there are some clinical trials right now he might be able to get in:
Best of luck!
