Hep C Provider Resources
You are the Key to the Cure
Together, we can eliminate Hepatitis C in Louisiana over the next five years. The Elimination Plan coordinated by the Louisiana Department of Health involves a combination of testing and treatment to target the roughly 40,000 people in our state with a probable or confirmed case of Hepatitis C.
How the Plan Works
The subscription model is an innovative drug pricing and payment mechanism to enable Louisiana to dramatically expand access to Hepatitis C treatment within its Medicaid and incarcerated populations. Louisiana selected Asegua Therapeutics, a subsidiary of Gilead Sciences, Inc., as its pharmaceutical partner.
Asegua will provide unrestricted access to the authorized generic for Epclusa for Medicaid eligible and incarcerated Louisianans for 5 years. Our goal is to cure at least 10,000 Medicaid-enrolled and incarcerated individuals per year.
