Sunvepra (asunaprevir) and Daklinza (daclatasvir)** will soon be considered for BC PharmaCare coverage. Therefore, your input will soon be sought.
Tentatively, patient and caregiver input into Sunvepra and Daklinza’s approval process will be requested from Wednesday July 22, 2015 to MIDNIGHT on Wednesday August 19, 2015.
If you are a BC resident and answer yes to any of the following questions, you can give your input into whether or not the treatments should be covered by PharmaCare:
- Do you have hep C?
- Are you a caregiver/loved one to someone who has hep C?
- Does your patient group represent patients who have hep C AND have you registered with PharmaCare to give input? (Learn more about registering your organization).
Please note that PharmaCare’s questionnaire for Sunvepra and Daklinza input tentatively wont be available for another three weeks. The Hepatitis C Treatment Information Project will follow this development and keep you updated.
