Find a Hep C Specialist
If you’re tired of living with the uncertainties of Hep C, talking with a Hep C Specialist is a great place to start. You are your best advocate throughout the EPCLUSA treatment process, but working with a Hep C Specialist means you’ve got an expert on your side.
With special training in Hep C treatment, Hep C Specialists are among the most informed about the latest developments in the field. Hep C Specialists include, but are not limited to, gastroenterologists (specialists in diseases that affect the digestive system) and hepatologists (specialists in diseases that affect the liver). Others who may treat Hep C include infectious diseases (ID) specialists, primary care physicians (PCPs), internal medicine specialists (internists), nurse practitioners (NPs), and physician assistants (PAs).
Not only may it be to your advantage to work with a Hep C Specialist because of their expertise, some insurance providers will only approve EPCLUSA prescriptions written by a Hep C Specialist.

Make the most of your appointment
Patients and healthcare providers alike understand that good communication can improve quality of care. When you go in for your appointment with your Hep C Specialist, make sure you’re having as productive a conversation as possible.
Be ready to work closely with your Hep C Specialist. There are many factors to discuss to help your Hep C Specialist determine if EPCLUSA could be right for you, including:
- The type of Hep C you have, called your genotype (If you have Hep C genotype 1, 4, 5, or 6, learn about another treatment option that may be right for you.)
- The extent of damage to your liver
- Any symptoms you may be experiencing
Express yourself and be clear—let your specialist know that you’re ready to find out if EPCLUSA is right for you.

Once you feel ready to make the most of your Hep C Specialist appointment, it’s time to explore your insurance coverage—even before you go to your appointment.

Understand your insurance benefits
If you’ve been prescribed EPCLUSA, your next step will likely be to focus on your insurance coverage. The more you know about your coverage options could make the benefits process easier down the line. Even if you think your insurance won’t cover EPCLUSA—or if you’re uninsured altogether—there may be solutions out there that would still allow you to receive EPCLUSA.
Knowing that coverage options may be available is one thing, but finding them and figuring them out is another. That’s where the live program navigators at EPCLUSA Support Path® come in. They work with people in your position every day and are experts in finding ways to make coverage for treatment with EPCLUSA possible.
Live EPCLUSA Support Path navigators can walk you through your plan and perform a benefits investigation, where they’ll find out if your insurance covers EPCLUSA. What’s more, they can prepare you for the coming approval process (which may require a process known as prior authorization) and give you a sense of what your out-of-pocket costs may be.
To get started, call EPCLUSA Support Path at 1-855-7-MYPATH (1-855-769-7284) and tell the EPCLUSA Support Path navigator that you have a prescription for EPCLUSA and want to complete a benefits investigation.

You may be eligible to keep costs down with the EPCLUSA co-pay coupon, which may allow you to pay no more than $5 per co-pay. Most people with private insurance are eligible.
You are not eligible if you are enrolled in a government healthcare prescription drug program such as Medicaid or Medicare Part D (including when you are in the coverage gap known as the “donut hole”). To learn more, visit Financial Assistance & Insurance Support.
If you are eligible, the EPCLUSA Co-pay Coupon Program will cover the out-of-pocket costs of your EPCLUSA prescriptions up to a maximum of 25% of the catalog price of a 12-week regimen of EPCLUSA.
