Hepatitis C Testing and Treatment Awareness Campaign

for Health Care Providers

Hepatitis C Testing and Treatment Awareness Campaign


VA has cured more than 100,000 Veterans of hepatitis C! We have made diagnosing, treating, and curing hepatitis C a priority, and saved the lives of tens of thousands of Veterans. Now is the time to treat and cure your hepatitis C. Learn how to get started below.

Campaign Description

Are you a Veteran interested in hepatitis C testing or treatment? Here's what you need to know. VA can only test and treat Veterans enrolled in VA care. If you haven't used VA for health care before, check out the benefits website to determine if you are eligible and find out how to enroll.

If you already use VA for your health care, talk to your provider about testing and treatment.

VA recommends testing for all Veterans age 18-79. Other reasons people should get tested for hepatitis C is if you have ever shared a needle to inject drugs, even if it was only once or a long time ago. For additional reasons to get tested, please take a look at our testing page.

The hepatitis C test is available for all Veterans enrolled in VA health care. The test itself is free, although your usual office visit copays may apply. Ask your VA provider for the test at your next visit.

Treatment and Cure
