Determining & Managing Hepatitis C Healthcare Costs

July 28th is World Hepatitis Day and in observance we want to spread awareness to our readership about this debilitating and costly health condition, as well as some newer areas of cost containment.

Currently, the CDC website states that an “HCV infection becomes chronic in approximately 75%–85% of cases.” This contrasts with Acute Hepatitis C, which is a short-term version of Hepatitis C that lasts 6 months and is typically cured naturally by the body. It’s important to note that Acute Hepatitis C is not the same as Chronic Hepatitis C and that improper diagnosis / HCV management can lead to catastrophic conditions – such as Cirrhosis, Liver Cancer and Liver Failure.
