If you’ve been diagnosed with chronic hepatitis C, it’s important to realize that you are not alone. Millions of people have hep C, and there are resources that can provide you with emotional support and assistance.
Your friends and family can also be a source of support, but if you are concerned with how they might react, you may want to prepare some facts about hep C to share with them.
Many resources exist to help patients and their families understand the potential out of pocket expenses for treatment. If you have insurance, you can call your insurance company and they can explain your benefits and coverage for hepatitis C treatments. There is also help even if you don't have insurance or need help with your co-pays, or if you have been denied treatment coverage. Additionally, some organizations can provide support to you and your family for managing hep C as well as information on overall health and wellness.
