Hoping for Harvoni Support from Support Path Program

I have an update on my niece Sandy, who has hepatitis C and is getting worried about her stage 2 fibrosis.

Her mother, my sister, just talked with Gilead’s Support Path Program. My sister asked them to help her daughter with the high cost of Harvoni.

My sister reports that the program representative said, “We want to see everybody have access to the medication.”

Sandy has a disability and is on social assistance. She can hardly afford to pay rent. Gilead’s shareholders can afford to be magnanimous. I hope that means Sandy will be treated very soon.

  1. I don’t know if this applies to Canada, but Patient Access Network helps people pay at least part of their drug costs too. Gilead I think pays only 25%. And there is always Medicaid if she is low income, at least in the U.S.
    I thought that Canada had a better system than U.S., doesn’t it have something like Medicaid?

  2. Each province in Canada has its own drug payment plan. Most cover hep C drugs once a person is at level 2. Generally there’s a deductible according to income. In British Columbia, for example, a family that makes $25,000 a year would pay no higher than $300 for drugs. A family with a $50,000 income would pay up to $2,000.

  3. Called support path 1-855-769-7284 they have a PAP application to help patient with medication coverage. If she qualify she does not have to pay anything.

  4. I must say it was hard to find your page in google.
    You write great posts but you should rank your blog higher in search engines.
