The cost of Hepatitis C medication is determined by the type of medication you require. Different genotypes of Hepatitis C are treated with different combinations of drugs. Here I will list briefly the three main choices of Hepatitis C treatment and their prices. For more detailed information please use the links provided to go to the page specific to each medicine.
Epclusa (Sofosbuvir 400 mg + Velpatasvir 100 mg) is currently the most effective treatment for Hepatitis C genotype 3. Epclusa will also effectively treat all other genotypes of Hep C. Generic Epclusa costs US$1,000 for 12 weeks treatment (84 pills @ one pill per day).
Harvoni (Sofosbuvir 400 mg + Ledipasvir 90 mg) is currently considered the most effective treatment for Hepatitis C genotype 1. Harvoni is not the optimum treatment for any other form of Hep C. The cost of generic Harvoni is US$900 for 12 weeks treatment. (84 pills @ one pill per day).
Sofosbuvir 400 mg + Daclatasvir 60 mg a cheap treatment options that is effective against all genotypes of Hepatitis C however for genotype 3 Sof + Dac is not quite as effective as Epclusa.
However for all other genotypes of Hepatitis C, that is G1, G2, G4 and G5, Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is an excellent treatment option that has a significantly lower price than other Hepatitis C drugs. It is as effective against G1 as Harvoni and as effective as Epclusa for Genotype 2. The cost of generic Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is US$700 for 12 weeks treatment (2 pills per day for 84 days). The only disadvantage in using Sof + Dac is that you need to take two pills per day instead of one pill per day.
The reason that Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is so cheap is that it is a very easy drug combination to manufacture.
