Hello Nick,

Ultrasound is not good for picking up cirrhosis but your platelets are normal, your liver is not knobbly, you are young and I'd be confident you don't have cirrhosis.

Adenomyomatosis of the gallbladder is found in ~9% of people and is a thickening of the gallbladder wall like a skin callus on your palm. It's harmless, incidental and needs no treatment.

Hello new guy here 4 years 7 months ago #26403

Hey guys I have a question regarding deductibles and co-pays in regards of prescription medications. I looked at my bill for all the lab work that was done and it's almost $600 and it seems like I'm almost paying out-of-pocket for all this. So to me it seems like my deductible has ran up and would this mean that I would have to pay the full cost for the hcv treatment once I am prescribed or will the insurance still cover some even though my deductible has ran out? I have no experience with this stuff this is pretty much the first time I have been to the doctors on my own so I'm still learning.

Edit: I called the customer service and asked why my bill was so much and they told me that they actually didn't have any insurance provider on my account which is weird because I gave them the information the first time I seen the doctor but anyway i gave my insurance information and hopefully that will lower my bill a couple hundred bucks but im still wondering about the deductible and prescription medications.

Hi Nick,

If you paid that much for your blood work, I can't even imagine how high your bill would be if you were actually approved for treatment. With my great insurance, I paid nothing for my blood work, nothing.

I want you to listen to me Nick. You can't believe how lucky you are to have found this website.

If I had been approved by my insurance company, Blue Cross/ Blue Shield, I would have paid at least $8,000 for treatment. So I paid nothing for blood work, and still would have paid $8,000 for medication

You can get the treatment here for $1500 or less. This is the way to go, and it is a guaranteed delivery. They will refund your money if need be but no one has not had there medication delivered. Nick, you stepped in shit when you found this site ( in a very good way) now follow through, buy your own medication and get cured!

Edit: Nick, I want you to understand what this site is all about. Dr. James Freeman has decided to help Hep C patients access medication because so many people in the world are being denied access to medication. He is helping thousands of people to get cured when they otherwise would be denied treatment

This is the best route to go, it's what I did and what I have recommended to other people who have been cured here.

hello thanks for the reply.
I have Blue Cross Blue Shield as well. I am going through the motions right now 2 try and find out how much treatment would be locally if it would be easier and more convenient to get my medication from a local pharmacy that is what I intend to do but I do not have my hopes up especially because I haven't had the virus very long I am fully prepared to purchase my medication from dr. Freeman and I think him dearly for what he does he has gone Far and Beyond with helping people like us I have a uncle who passed away one year ago from liver failure and I just wish that I could have helped him by directing him to this website I also have a cousin who was just diagnosed with cirrhosis but he is currently in a penitentiary so I can't help him for the time being but from those guys's experience with the virus it has really opened my eyes and made me realize that I really do need to take care of this. I should find out soon enough if I'll be able to afford the treatment locally and I believe all dr. Freeman needs from me at this point is my genotype which is still processing. Also another good reason to purchase from dr. Freeman is because I would get the full treatment and would not need to return to a pharmacy every month I plan on going to school out of state away from my local Town Pharmacy so that would be a problem. Sorry for the wall of text.

Hello Nick. I live in Idaho in the States. I was treated last year with generic epclusa. I am genotype 3a. If you are genotype 3, take the prescription for a longer period of time, not just the recommended 3 months. Hopefully you are not. I had no insurance and still don't. Once I ordered I got my medications within 1.5 wks. It was very quick. I finished treatment September 2017. My last viral load was undetected at 4 months. I had it rechecked. and am awaiting the results. Hopefully your insurance will pay for the medication but, if not, the generic medications are the same quality medication as brand name, just doesn't have the price. We hope to hear how you are doing with this. Good luck!

hello i was wondering if the ultrasound would be sufficient for the requirements to get a prescription from you? I should learn my genotype really soon i guess they only do the test once a week.

Hello Nick, the ultrasound test will show your liver fibrosis level. You also need to have the following tests to get a prescription :

⦁ CMP (to know your liver and kidney functions)
⦁ CBC (to make sure not too anaemic and platelets are good)
⦁ HEP B CORE AB, TOTAL to know if you've been exposed to Hepatis B in the past. If this test is negative, you do not need to do any other Hepatitis B tests.

If you want, you can have these 3 tests for a very affordable price, and privately, if you order them through Link2Labs www.link2labs.com/home/product/products . Simply click on BUNDLED at the top of the page then order the 'FixHepC 1' bundle which costs 65 USD.

Hello new guy here 4 years 6 months ago #26469

will i still have a pretty high cure rate? im kinda nervous. Does viral load have any impact on how well your respond to treatment? Also do i need to request the cmp test in order to get my prescription? Wednesday i see the specialist finally and he has ordered me to take the fibrosis test. Im ready to start treatment already!

Hi Nick, the new medications have about a 90% cure rate in Genotype 3 patients, so they are extremely effective, no need to worry. The difference now is that you can not be treated with 'Harvoni' (which is not effective against GT3), you have to be treated with either 'Epclusa', or 'Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir'.
