Default Will Not Treat!!

My fiance has Hep C. Medical staff told him (Florida) that they do not treat until it gets to the point where he is doing bad. I dont understand this! There are pills out there to help with this. Does anyone know where I can compain to or find out info on how to get him checked regulary and possible medicated. I dont know where to start. When i call the medical department at his facility they tell me they just dont do that in Florida.. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION WITH THIS.... Thanks everyone.

Julia, The same thing happened to my son in Calif. The only thing I can think of is to contact your state officials and also find out who is the medical care for his facility contracted through and contact them. Please let us know how this turns out.
