Australian abroad 7 years 10 months ago #13795

I am currently living in New Zealand. I don't meet the critreia for medicare as i have been out of the country for more than 5 years. I have had hep c for 30 years and need treatment.
Apart from moving back my whole family, which would cost more than the treatment in new zealand, what can i do?

I recommend calling the Dr, (Freeman), then purchasing meds from Kingswood Pharmacy and it'll be a done deal. Or you could join the Redemption deal. It's all on here. ;)

Hi iseeson,

As splitdog says, there are a number of possibilities available for people in NZ these days. We also have a number of active members who live there so no doubt one will be along soon to provide you with the most current info about your options.

Hi. Lots of people locally in NZ buying, and getting medication in the mail safely, legally and within a week, through Redemption Trial. You need recent test results and a prescription, see the homepage of this site or pm me about doctors in NZ who will prescribe.

Hi iseeson

First off a big welcome to you! I am in NZ and have recently finished a12 week course of which I am now SVR 4. Medication is able to be shipped to NZ no problem for around $2000. In order for this to happen you need to have a script which can be obtained in a number of ways * through a consult via GP2u
* through a consult with a partner of the Redemption Trial
* your own GP here in NZ is also able to write you a script as well which some here are doing.

You will need to know what Genotype you have and depending on what state your liver is in will help to determine what medication and length of treatment is best for you. Where in NZ are you?

here is the link for the Redemption Trial
