50% of people living with Hep C don't even know they have it.

Thankfully, Hep C is curable, and 93% of our patients achieve a sustained virologic response (SVR) – effectively curing them of the disease. But, if left untreated, it can cause liver damage, liver cancer, or death. 

ways to get tested:

1. Request an at-home testing kit

2. Schedule an appointment for in-person testing

3. Email testing@trilliumhealth.org or call 585.545.7737

As a Hepatitis C Center of Excellence, Trillium Health is expertly staffed to treat infected patients – including board-certified infectious disease physicians, pharmacists, and coordinators who can get you from diagnosis to cure.

To help deliver comprehensive care to all of our patients, Trillium Health employs a bilingual staff and a full-time onsite Spanish interpreter. We also provide integrated harm reduction services, including medication-assisted treatment (Suboxone for opioid dependence). 

who should get tested for Hep C?

While some individuals are at a higher risk for Hep C, the United States Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screening for Hep C infection in adults aged 18 to 79 years.

Individuals at the highest risk for Hep C infection:

  • Were born between 1945-1965
  • Had a blood transfusion before 1992
  • Have injected or snorted drugs
  • Have been incarcerated
  • Are living with HIV
  • Received a tattoo or piercing in an unlicensed setting
  • Are on hemodialysis
  • Have multiple sexual partners
  • Engage in receptive anal sex
  • Have been diagnosed with an STD in the last year
  • Are on HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)
  • Are of the trans-feminine experience

Each year, more people are dying from Hep C than from other reportable infectious diseases (including HIV).

Adhering to medications is essential to be cured of the virus. There is always a risk of reinfection if an individual continues to engage in risk factors such as injecting drugs, sharing cocaine straws, or engaging in high-risk sexual behaviors.
