Our friends over at the Patient Advocate Foundation have recently launched a new toll-free care line for people living with hepatitis C. Case managers on the hotline focus on helping individuals access financial assistance to offset the cost of treatment.
The current reality of hepatitis C is that, while many individuals may be fully aware of their status, a good portion either can’t afford or don’t know how to go about qualifying for treatment. With the newest hepatitis C medications on the market providing cure rates for certain genotypes in the 95th percentile and above, the need for proactive care and treatment at affordable costs is more important now than ever before.
Individuals living with a chronic infection of hepatitis C can receive case management services via the Patient Advocate Foundation’s Care Line free-of-charge. The number to call is 1-800-532-5274, You can also visit their website here.
