On October 23, 2013, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed into law a new Section 2171 of the Public Health Law that requires the offering of a hepatitis C screening test to every individual born between 1945 and 1965 receiving inpatient hospital care or primary care.
Along with new, more effective HCV treatments, this new State law provides us an opportunity to increase the number of persons aware of their HCV status, link them to appropriate medical care and treatment, and provide them a possible cure for HCV.
