Testing and "iYeatment If you're between ages 52 to 72, or fall into one ofthe previously list- ed high risk categories, you should see your primary care doctor for a ba- sic blood test to determine whether you have ever been infected with hep- atitis C. This is a relatively inexpensive test and typically covered by health insurance under routine medical care. If the test is negative, no further testsare needed. But, if the test is pos- itive, you'll need another test called HCV RNA, whicli will show whether the vires is still active. If you test positive, you have chronic hepatitis C and will need to talk to your doctor about treatment options. If you're infected, but have no liv- er damage, your doctor should monitor your liver at your annual physi- cal. The main treatments for chronic hepatitis C today are several new FDA approved antiviral medications that have a 95 percent cure rate. Compared to older treatments, these new medications have minimal side effects. Un- fortunately, all the new drugs are very expensive - a 12-week treatment course can cost anywhere from $50,000 to $90,000. Not all health insurance plans, including Medicare Part D plans, cov- er all prescribed medications for hepatitis C. And due to the expensive na- ture &these medications, most insurance plans require that you meet sev- eral requirements in order to get coverage. If your insurance provider doesn't cover the antiviral therapy your doc- tor recomnaends, fllcz~ ~u-c finaslcial a~istance option~ available.
