State Prisons Fail to Offer Cure to 144,000 Inmates With Deadly Hepatitis C By Siraphob Thanthong-Knight — 1 Comment

As a Community Health Worker/Patient Navigator I see the cost and medical resources it takes to care for HCV patient side effects. Waiting to treat patients until they are in the later stages due to Medicaid requirements is not cost effective and detrimental for the patient’s well-being.
