Is There Counseling with Hepatitis C Testing?

for Veterans and the Public

Is there counseling? - Hepatitis C for Patients

It's important to get counseling when you are tested for hepatitis C. As part of the procedure in the VA, a health care provider will talk with you and explain the testing process, answer your questions, and address your concerns. The provider also can offer advice about reducing your risk for hepatitis C.

After your results come in, your health care provider will tell you what the results were and answer your questions. If your test result is positive, the provider will refer you for a medical evaluation and treatment in a VA facility. If your result is negative, you will learn about ways to protect yourself against hepatitis C.
