MDHHS Initiative on How to Treat Hepatitis C
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services recently launched the We Treat Hep C Initiative to eliminate hepatitis C and improve access to hepatitis C treatment among Michigan Medicaid and Healthy Michigan Plan beneficiaries.
It’s estimated that at least 200,000 people in Michigan are living with hepatitis C and many don’t even know they have it. Hepatitis C often spreads silently because symptoms don’t appear for many years. When symptoms do appear, they are often a sign of advanced liver disease.
As part of the Michigan’s state plan on eliminating hepatitis C, MDHHS is offering the following educational opportunities for providers listed below. Blue Cross Complete supports the We Treat Hep C Initiative and strongly encourages providers to attend these sessions.
