My boyfriend has Hepatitis C, where can I take him for treatment?
My boyfriend found out that he had Hep C over 3 years ago and has never gone to the doctor for treatment or to find out what genotype he has. He lives in Bakersfield, CA and I want to take him to go through treatment, but is there a place that offers free treatment or at an affordable price, I don't think his medical insurance would cover it all. Does anyone know if there are any universities that are doing studies and could provide the treatment free or at an affordable rate?

I am seriously considering us getting married so that I can have him on my medical at work and then he would be covered. Also, can someone please give me some ideas on how to tell him that Hep C is a serious issue and that he really needs to take steps to take better care of himself. a great big thank you to all who answer!! :-)

I take care of patients that have no money. I suggest you try contacting the people at the site below. Good luck

There is a treatment but many people cant complete it as it makes them SO SICK.
My mother tried it and my cousins step dad- He had to take a year off work to take it. But now he has no signs of it.

I think the meds are called Pegasis? <sp> Call your doctor and ask them.
Hep C is important b/c you dont want to pass it to your child. It slowly destroys your liver and leads to many health probs.
Just because he doesnt feel bad *yet* doesnt mean he shouldnt do something.

Good luck!!

Check the phone book for free clinics or sliding scale clinics. Call medical offices. Someone there might know of a place. Go online and run a search for "clinical trials for hepatitis C" and "free clinics".

As far as convincing him of the seriousness, run a search on hep C and learn all about yourself. Then you'll have the ammo you need. Good luck.

I have hep c and I know what is involved. Is he a vet? its a possible source of treatment. Check on-line for med trials. The university of Kansas, mo. Has 1 right now. there are others he may qualify for. As the gentleman above explained quite well; this will not go away. Treatment is brutal. Geno type is important for treatment. Most ( not all ) Americans seem to have Geno type 1, which is hard to treat. I have had hep since 1971, luckily I am not a heavy drinker or I would not be writing this. Good luck to you! I failed treatment, but if you don't drink, do drugs and really watch your diet you can die with hep c; not because of it!

I don't know other than the hosp.where to take him. I do know it is serious.He needs to be checked to see how far along the virus is. You do know it is contagious right? You can die from this stuff if your liver gets too bad.Make sure you don't share toothbrushes nail clippers or anything that makes you come in contact with his blood. You might want to go get a blood test yourself.I do know you can buy him some Garlic tablets about 1000 mgs and give him one each day. Garlic is a natural way to help filter & clean the liver. Good luck.
Oh yeah another thing if he has already been dianoised with hep C then your insurance won't touch him. They call it pre existing condition and you are out of luck with help.
