Hi Iris,

I don't have any personal experience with Medi-Cal, Iris. I have heard the denials are common in California because of a the state budget, or gross lack of one. The funds are non existent and until they get this healthcare mess resolved, I don't see a lot of approvals on the horizon. Now with Gov. Moonbeam approving all of the coverage for non resident aliens, I wouldn't hold my breath.

The future protocols do look promising, but the opportunity to obtain access to them is in need of serious investigation. The need for fair and equal access to generics shouldn't be limited to third world countries willing to play footsie with Big Pharm and vice versa.. [smh]

I'm up in the air about this, not because I don't think everybody should be treated, but because of what they could be getting themselves into. As we are all beginning to see, there are lasting effects from harvoni, arthritis, pains, sleeplessness etc., that weren't there before. And there are many many new treatments are coming up the pipeline that are shorter in duration and perhaps easier on long term issues. If your and F1 or F2, maybe waiting a year or so would be in your best interest. I expect at some point the medication will be down to 2 weeks or so. I even read somewhere about one shot. They have broken the code, and newer treatments will continue to improve.

Its still criminal what they are charging though. And nobody who wants to treat should be denied by their insurance companies.

I read this in my local newspaper the other day. I fear this may be the new trend of insurance companies, and the fact USC told me last year they were only treating 3rd and 4th stage patient's is now making sense to my medical insurance mind. I have crap insurance so they won't  accept me in the treatment program.
