Online Harvoni? or Other Hepatitis C Medications.
« on: September 27, 2016, 01:15:10 pm »
Hi everyone,
I am new to the forum & very new to Hep C, about 4 days new. Just st found out last Fri.
I have been asking questions, reading, really going through everything here on the forum & elsewhere.
I am just trying to think ahead & prepare for anything I may encounter.
My favorite quote is "Pray for peace, but prepare for war!"
I have noticed several people commenting on how difficult it is to acquire Harvoni with State Ins.
& the cost out of pocket is more than I can afford.
My question is are these medications from India that so many are talking about actually the real thing?
Are they safe?
Do you get ripped off?
Etc. Etc.
Again I'm just trying to put my ducks in a row if I end up in that position & would appreciate any feedback.
I was in the Marines 1991-1995 so I tend to overcompensate & prepare to prepare!
Thanks again...
So that's what I'm doing..
